It took just 45 minutes for Jayant Yadav and Ravichandran Ashwin to run through New Zealand's lower-order on the fourth morning of the Mumbai Test, which completed India's massive series-clinching 372-run win. It’s the biggest ever winning-margin for India in Test cricket, in terms of runs.
After New Zealand began Day 4 at 140/5 in their run-chase of 540, India took just 11.3 overs to finish the game, with Jayant Yadav running through the lower order in an impressive six-over spell first up. He returned with 4/49 overall, before Ravichandran Ashwin had Henry Nicholls stumped for 44 to complete India’s emphatic 372-run win.
It was the biggest win for India in terms of runs, the previous best being the 337-run win against South Africa in Delhi six years ago. India took the two-match series 1-0, which was their 14th consecutive series win at home.
