India A in drivers seat in Lincoln

6:40 pm on 27 September 2012

India A have taken control of the first Four-Day cricket match against New Zealand A in Lincoln, with the hosts trailing the tourist's first innings total by 234 runs at the end of day two.

Having resumed at 136 for four, India produced a fifth wicket partnership of 105 on their way to reaching an overall total of 339 all out.

In reply, the home side recovered from four early wickets to end the day at 105 for four.

Bad light once again forced an early end to the day's play, as shadows forced the teams from the pitch 31.4 overs into the New Zealand innings.

Play will begin at 10:00am tomorrow to make up for lost overs on day one.
