Trent Boult moving around the crease and batting like AB DeVilliers here

Earlier, Jasprit Bumrah started the day well for India by dismissing BJ Watling on the first delivery of the day. Watling edged a short delivery straight to Rishabh Pant behind the stumps.
Ishant Sharma then accounted for Tim Southee who flicked one straight to Mohammed Shami at fine-leg.
Kyle Jamieson, on his Test debut, put on 71 runs for the eighth wicket with Colin de Grandhomme.
Jamieson scored 44 runs before being dismissed by Ravichandran Ashwin.
Ashwin then struck again to send back de Grandhomme for 43 as he gloved one down the leg to Pant.
Ajaz Patel and Boult added 38 runs for the final wicket before Ishant Sharma removed the latter to pick up his 11th five-wicket haul in Tests.
India had managed to reduce New Zealand to 225 for seven at one stage but then the last three wickets added 123 runs, taking New Zealand’s lead close to 200.
The wicket is starting to turn and there is enough in it for the bowlers to keep the batsmen in check. India will have to bat well to stage a fightback from here on.
