Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : February 17th 2014 Contents WELLINGTON---New Zealand cap-
tain Brendon McCullum made a cen-
tury and wicketkeeper BJ Watling a
half century in a gritty sixth wicket
partnership yesterday to stall India's
drive for a series-leveling victory in
the second cricket test.
Trailing India by 246 runs on the
first innings, New Zealand was 94-
5 and staring at likely defeat when
McCullum and Watling came together
four overs after lunch. They stayed
together for the next 259 minutes
and 373 balls, adding 158 runs before
McCullum was 114 and Watling 52
at the end of the day, taking New
Zealand to 252-5---a lead of 6 runs.
New Zealand leads the two-test
series 1-0 after winning the first
match at Auckland by 40 runs.
McCullum was twice dropped early
in his innings and seized on both
reprieves to become only the fourth
New Zealander to reach 5,000 runs
in tests, after Stephen Fleming, Mar-
tin Crowe and John Wright. He
reached the mark with his 81st run.
McCullum took 214 minutes and
146 balls to reach a half century, but
as his partnership with Watling
gained momentum, he scored more
freely and added his second half cen-
tury in 84 minutes from 53 balls. He
reached his ninth test century with
a six off Ishant Sharma.
"We had a test match to try and
save," he said. "At 5-94 things
weren't looking so good, but thank-
fully BJ and I put together a part-
nership which remains undefeated at
the end of the day."
"If we can put ourselves in a good
position later on tomorrow, who
knows what we can achieve?"
Watling came into the match lack-
ing form and low on confidence---he
made just 1 and 11 in the first test at
Eden Park and a duck in the first
innings of the second test at the Basin
But he batted doggedly on Sunday,
getting his half century in 230 min-
utes off 192 balls, with only four fours.
Zaheer Khan (3-60) put India in
good position for an innings victory
when he claimed two wickets during
the morning session. The veteran
paceman had dismissed Peter Fulton
(1) late on the second day to send
New Zealand to stumps at 24-1. He
then removed Kane Williamson (7)
and Hamish Rutherford (35), both
caught by wicketkeeper MS Dhoni,
to leave New Zealand 87-4 at lunch.
Tom Latham, who made a duck in
the first innings in his test debut,
guided New Zealand back into the
match, batting a steady 111 minutes
for 29 before he was dismissed before
But Corey Anderson (2) then fell,
caught and bowled, to Ravindra Jadeja
shortly after lunch, and New Zealand,
at 94-5, seemed to have little chance
of making India bat again.
That's when the partnership of
McCullum and Watling took over.
"As captain ... you've got to try to
work your game to the situation and
I was just pleased to be able to get
through to the end of the day and
make sure we're still only five down,"
McCullum said. "We've got a lot more
ground to cover tomorrow."
