Gambhir takes India closer to history

Opener Gautam Gambhir scored a magnificent 167 to close the door on New Zealand's faint hopes of saving the series in the third and deciding cricket Test here Sunday.
India put a target of 601 runs and they reached 167 for four in their second innings on the fourth day at the Basin Reserve.
The tourists lead the series 1-0 and need only a draw from this final Test to ensure their first series win in New Zealand since 1968, with only weather likely to save New Zealand from a heavy loss.
