India-New Zealand third test : Kohli and Rahane put team in strong position
Both Kohli (103) and Rahane (79) remained unbeaten with a partnership of 167 runs between them when stumps were drawn.
This was Kohli's 13th tests century and the first in the current series, which India have already won the series with a 2-0 margin.
Earlier in the day, India made a brisk start with openers Murli Vijay and Gautam Gambhir going good, but both the openers fell within the team's score on 60. While Vijay scored ten, Gambhir, a test recall, made 29, including two over boundaries and two boundaries.
Cheteshwar Pujara and Kohli put on 40 runs for the third wicket in what appeared to be a prompt recovery. But just after lunch, Pujara was dismissed for 100 at his individual 41.
From then on Kohli and Rahane pulled India out of the scare of early dismissal, playing stellar roles to frustrate the Kiwi bowling.
