Brendon McCullum reaped rewards for his hard work and got third-highest score  in Tests in India. The game was headed for a draw the moment Zaheer Khan left the field again after bowling just three overs in the morning session.

New Zealand has now held India, the No. 1 side, to four consecutive draws.
