KOLKATA (Reuters) - India were all out for 263 in their second innings on the fourth morning of the second test at Eden Gardens, setting New Zealand a target of 376 runs for a series-equalling win on Monday.

Wriddhiman Saha was not out on 58 for his second unbeaten fifty of the test with the hosts looking to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series and reclaim the top spot in the world test rankings from Pakistan.

Trent Boult, Matt Henry and Mitchell Santner picked up three wickets each for the touring side.
