The records are continuing to tumble at the Basin Reserve as New Zealand continue to fight to save the second and final test against India.

New Zealand have reached tea on 440 for five, with a lead of 194 runs after the captain, Brendon McCullum became the first New Zealander to score double centuries in consecutive tests.

He and BJ Watling, who's unbeaten on 119, have combined for a 346 run partnership, New Zealand's highest sixth wicket stand and third highest of all time.
