India tightened the noose around New Zealand on Day 3 of the opening Test in Hyderabad on Friday but rain forced an early end to proceedings here. A statistical look at the day's play which finished with the visitors trailing by 238, after being asked to follow on.

# Chris Martin has recorded his second duck against India - his 34th in Tests.  He has extended his unwanted New Zealand record for most ducks.  Only Courtney Walsh (43) and Glenn McGrath (35) have registered more ducks than Martin.

# Martin is averaging just 1.75 away from home (51 runs in 52 innings) in Tests - his overall Test average being 2.46 (123 runs in 101 innings).

# James Franklin, with his unbeaten 43, has top-scored for New Zealand.

# Since posting 122 not out against South Africa at Cape Town in April 2006, Franklin has recorded just one fifty in sixteen innings.

# Ravichandran Ashwin's brilliant figures are the best by a bowler at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, surpassing Daniel Vettori's 5 for 135 in 2010-11.

# Ashwin (6/31) has recorded his best ever bowling performance in Test Cricket, eclipsing the 6 for 47 against the West Indies at Feroz Shah Kotla, in November last year.

# Ashwin's above bowling figures are the fourth best by an Indian bowler against New Zealand. Srinivasraghavan Venkataraghavan holds a record, having captured 8 for 72 at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi in 1964-65, followed by  Erapalli Prasanna's eight for 76 at Auckland in 1975-76 and Subhash Gupte's seven for 28 at Fateh Maidan, Hyderabad in 1955-56.

# Ashwin has taken five wickets or more in an innings three times - twice against the West Indies and once against New Zealand.

# New Zealand have to follow-on against India four times - all three previous occasions being in the same series i.e. 1955-56.  Of the three, India had won two Tests
