Kolkata, Oct 4: India took an unassailable 2-0 series lead and claimed the No.1 Test ranking after pinning New Zealand down in a riveting see-saw affair, to win the second cricket Test by 178 runs on the fourth day here on Monday (Oct 3).

Match scorecard; India become No. 1

Chasing a stiff 376-run target, the visitors initially showed grit but then fell to the guile of the Indian spinners once again -- similar to the first Test at Kanpur that they lost by 197 runs -- managing a meagre 197 in their second outing before a turnout of around 12,000 spectators at the Eden Gardens.

India thus reclaimed the numero uno Test team status, which they had enjoyed for a short period while during their tour to the West Indies, by dethroning arch-rivals Pakistan.

Kohli broke into celebration alongwith team mates as soon as India registered the emphatic win over Kiwis.

Here are the images of the celebrations:
