India wins historic 500th Test by 197 runs against New Zealand
27 September 2016 Current Affairs: India has defeated New Zealand by 197-run to win its historic 500th cricket test match in Kanpur on 26 September 2016. On the fifth and final day of the match at Green Park, India bowled out the visitors for 236 in their second innings, shortly after Lunch, after setting them an improbable target of 434.

The victory, which is India's 88th on home turf, gave them a 1-0 lead in the three-Test series. With this win, India has taken their unbeaten tally on home soil to 11 matches. On the other hand, New Zealand remained without a win on the Indian soil since 1998.

Man of the Match  :  Ravinder Jadeja. He was awarded for his fine all-round performance in which he captured six wickets and scored 92 runs.

Besides, the match also saw that India’s off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin became the fastest Indian and second overall to take 200 wickets in test matches. He reached the milestone in his 37th Test. Only leg-spinner Clarrie Grimmett got to the double century of wickets faster than Ashwin. The Australian reached there in 36 Tests.
