Ravichandran Ashwin picked four wickets and Mohammed Siraj returned three as India bowled New Zealand out for 62 on Day Two of the second Test at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.

It is the lowest total at the Wankhede Stadium in Test cricket. India's 93 all out against Australia in 2004 held the earlier record. It is also the lowest total against India in Tests.
