Watch cricket highlights: India vs New Zealand 3rd Test Day 4 at Wellington

Scoreline: India 434/7 declared. Yuvraj Singh 40, MS Dhoni 56. NZ – Target 617 – currently 167/4 – Ross Taylor 69 no, Martin Guptill 49. Rahul Dravid now holds the world record for most number of catches in test cricket.

India batted for a while today and through Yuvraj (quick runs) and Dhoni (runs + grind-em-in-the-field) set up an impossible target of 617.

Martin Guptill faced some hostile stuff from Zaheer Khan but looked really good only to yet again disappoint after a good start. It came down to Ross Taylor yet again after Jesse Ryder fell and after a did-it-didn’t-it-carry moment was still batting on 69.

Rahul Dravid has been finding it tough to go past Mark Waugh’s record of 181 catches in the last year – it started around the India vs Aus series. In fact, at that time his personal run-scoring form was at its all-time low causing Mark Waugh to quip – hope he gets a couple of ducks, gets dropped and never gets a chance to break my record.
