Brownie ton leads NZ ‘A’ fightback

Dean Brownlie pulled New Zealand ‘A’ out of troubled waters with a fighting century as India ‘A’ lost their stranglehold over the hosts at stumps on the third and penultimate day of the second unofficial Test.

Resuming the day at a precarious 198 for five in reply to India’s mammoth 554 for eight declared, Brownlie (106) stitched two century partnerships -- first with Luke Woodcock and then Sam Wells -- to save the Kiwis from humiliation.

Brownlie hit some glorious shots during his 106-run knock, which was studded with 16 fours. New Zealand ‘A’ declared their innings on 424 for seven.
