The second and final Test match between India and New Zealand is currently underway at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Meanwhile, the Virat Kohli-led side is currently sitting on the edge of a well-deserved victory to seal the series 1-0.

Almost every Kiwi batter has miserably failed to produce a substantial knock in both the innings of the game. NZ’s most experienced player Ross Taylor too had a forgettable outing with the bat as he registered poor scores of 1 and 6 against the hosting team. However, the manner in which he played on Day three grabbed the attention of all cricket fans and experts out there. 

Former India batter VVS Laxman, who was commentating during Taylor’s short-spanned inning, lambasted him. The cricketer-turned-commentator slammed the 37-year-old’s weird style of counter-attacking and poor technique against spin bowling.

Here’s the full video of VVS Laxman’s commentary during Ross Taylor’s knock:

The Indian cricket team needs just five more wickets to win the Mumbai Test and register yet another red-ball series triumph against their name. The Asian Giants have set a massive target of 540 runs in front of the Blackcaps in the final innings of the game. 

Ace India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin led the bowling attack of his side on the third day to claim three quick wickets of the top-order batters. New Zealand are currently placed at 140/5 on the board at the end of the day’s play. 

Earlier, Kiwi spinner Ajaz Patel had scripted history after registering the best bowling spell against India in a Test match (14/225), bettering Sir Ian Botham’s 13/106, registered back in 1980.
