Hyderabad, India – India spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha scythed down New Zealand's top half to put the hosts in firm control of the opening Test at the close of the second day on Friday.
At stumps, the visitors were 106/5, trailing India by 332 runs in their first innings. James Franklin (31) and Kruger van Wyk (nought) were at the crease for New Zealand.
Off-spinner Ashwin took three wickets while left-armer Ojha picked up the remaining two to fall after their batting colleagues racked up 438 in their first innings.
Ojha, who was introduced in the eighth over, struck first when he lured opener Brendon McCullum (22) to drive straight into the hands of Virat Kohli at cover.
Kohli took the next two catches at leg slip off Ashwin to dismiss Martin Guptill (two) and New Zealand captain Ross Taylor (two).
