India declared their second innings at 377 for five at tea, extending their overall lead to 433 runs on the penultimate day of the first Test against New Zealand at the Green Park here on Sunday.

Ajinkya Rahane (40) was the lone wicket to fall in the second session of the day.

Rohit Sharma (68 not out) and Ravindra Jadeja (50 not out) scored half-centuries to put the hosts in the driving seat.

Murali Vijay (76) and Chetseshwar Pujara (78) contributed handsomely to India's cause.

With pitch rapidly deteriorating, New Zealand now need 434 runs to win the Test.
