Kohli stroked his way to a career-best 211 and was brilliantly supported by Ajinkya Rahane, who also notched up his highest score of 188 as the home team gained a clear upperhand on a pitch that will only get difficult to bat with passage of time.

Kohli struck 20 hits to the fence while Rahane was equally dominant in his innings that was laced with 4 sixes and 18 boundaries.

The duo decimated the New Zealand attack to pile on a huge fourth wicket partnership of 365 – the highest-ever for India for the fourth wicket against all teams.
