Left-arm spinner Saurabh Kumar grabbed five wickets to play a big role in India A’s series clinching 113-run victory over New Zealand ‘A’ in the third and final unofficial Test here on Sunday.

The target of 416 was out of question, but New Zealand ‘A’ at one point did look like trying to play for a draw before they lost the last five wickets for less than 50 runs to be bowled out for 302 in 85.2 overs. 

Saurabh, who has been on the fringes of the senior national team, had figures of 5-103 in 27.2 overs and a match-haul of nine wickets, having picked up four in the first innings.
