MUMBAI,  – New Zealand were 13 for one by tea in the second Test while chasing 540 after India declared their innings at 276-7 on Sunday.

Will Young was batting on seven as off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin sent back stand-in skipper Tom Latham for six and teams were forced to break early due to problems with a TV spider-cam in Mumbai.

New Zealand’s Mumbai-born spinner Ajaz Patel, who took a record 10 wickets in India’s 325 in the first innings, returned match figures of 14-225 — the best ever by a bowler against India.
