Ajaz Patel continued to trouble Indian batters in the morning session of day 2 as the hosts lost six wickets at Lunch with a score of 285/6 on the board here in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. 

Resuming the day at 221/4, Patel struck in the 3rd over of the day as he trapped Wriddhiman Saha in front with a straighter delivery to pick his third five-wicket haul. On the very next delivery, he bowled R Ashwin with a beauty to find himself on a hattrick.

Axar Patel joined Mayank Agarwal at the crease and negated Ajaz's hattrick delivery. Kiwi bowlers continued to bowl tight lines and didn't allow the two batters to score easy runs. 

Although Mayank was the set batter but he too couldn't find any lose delivery to try and dominate the bowlers. However, both Mayank and Axar defended well and didn't allow New Zealand to pick another wicket despite them taking a new ball. 

Mayank is currently on 146, adding only 26 runs to his overnight score, while Axar is 32 not out. The two have added 61 runs for the seventh wicket in 157 balls.
