Ravichandran Ashwin exposed New Zealand’s batting limitations against spin with a second successive six-wicket haul as India won the opening Test by an innings and 115 runs yesterday.

The off-spinner (6-54) was superbly supported by left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha (3-48) as New Zealand, following on after conceding a 279-run lead, collapsed to 164 in their second innings on the penultimate day in Hyderabad.

Man-of-the-match Ashwin, who grabbed a career-best 6-31 in the first innings, finished with 12-85, his best match-haul in seven Tests.
