Auckland: With India needing another 320 runs with nine wickets remaining to win the first Test against New Zealand here, paceman Neil Wagner said the hosts are confident of taking the visitors' remaining wicket and will not be hitting the panic button just yet.
"It's a bit of a bittersweet day. We started off really well with the ball this morning and it was a great result to get them out for the score we did. Obviously, the batting after that really wasn't ideal stuff but at the end of the day, we are pretty happy with where we are," he said.
"There are still a lot of runs on the board left to get and if we bowl well, we can get the nine wickets if we start off well in the morning. It doesn't look like an ideal scenario but at the start of the game, we would have taken this any day," he added.
Having closed on Friday with a lead of 373 and India four down, the hosts proceeded to skittle the visitors for 202 as their pace attack fired at Eden Park.
But rather than make India bat again and reach the 301 they needed to send New Zealand out once more, captain Brendon McCullum chose to ignore the follow-on option.
