Kyle Jamieson wrecked India with the ball and opener Devon Conway compiled a half-century to put New Zealand in a commanding position in the final of the inaugural ICC World Test Championship in Southampton on Sunday.
Jamieson claimed 5/31, his fifth five-wicket haul in his eighth Test, to help bowl out India for a below-par 217.
New Zealand reached 101-2, 116 runs behind, when bad light forced early stumps on Day 3 at the Ageas Bowl.
Earlier, resuming on 146/3, India fell short of the 250-mark which they believed would be a par total at this ground.
New Zealand mounted a strong reply with Latham, who scored 30, and Conway adding 70 runs for the opening stand.
