4:08 pm on 20 March 2009

India has posted an imposing 520 all out in its first innings, after belting the New Zealand bowlers all over Seddon Park on day three of the first cricket test in Hamilton.

The tourists will take a 241 run lead into the second innings.

Sachin Tendulkar top-scored with 160 and tailender Zaheer Khan maintained the Black Caps' misery with an unbeaten 51.

Chris Martin and Iain O'Brien were the best of the New Zealand bowlers with three wickets each.
