INDORE, India (AP) New Zealand opener Martin Guptill scored an unbeaten 59 to help New Zealand reach lunch at 125-1 on day three of the third cricket test, still 432 runs behind India's imposing first-innings total of 557-5 declared.

Guptill and Tom Latham (53) resumed Monday at 28-0 and lasted most of the morning session, adding 90 runs before Ravi Ashwin (1-42) took a return catch to end the opening stand with the total at 118.

Both openers had reprieves, with Guptil dropped at gully on 21 and Latham put down at mid-wicket on 13, both off Mohammed Shami's bowling.

Kane Williamson was unbeaten on three at the interval.

India has clinched the three-test series after winning the first and second tests.
