India are on the cusp of a 3-0 clean-sweep over the Black Caps.

They will resume on 18-0 with a lead of 276 after dismissing the visitors for 299 and disregarding the follow-on.

As the wicket starts to resemble the surface of the Apollo XI moon landing, Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will become pivotal in the fourth innings where locals suggest first-class scores over 200 are rare.

Ashwin's off spin continued to dominate with figures of six for 81 giving him 20 wickets at an average of 21 for the series. Jadeja supported him in New Zealand's first innings with two for 80.
