Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha finished with a five-wicket haul as India bowled out New Zealand to 365 in its first innings on the second day of the second test at Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Ojha dismissed Tim South leg-before wicket to complete figures of 5-99 after pace bowlers Zaheer Khan and Umesh Yadav had struck important blows earlier in the morning.
Khan dismissed danger man Kruger van Wyk for 71 while Yadav got Jeetan Patel without scoring, as New Zealand failed to build much on its overnight 328-6.
