Wellington: At a loss of words to explain India's poor performance, batsman Shikhar Dhawan on Monday conceded that New Zealand have turned the tables on his side in the ongoing second Test but insisted that the visitors still have a chance to not just save but win the match. The hosts took a 325-run lead at the end of the fourth day's play at Basin Reserve, with skipper Brendon McCullum scoring an unbeaten 281. But Dhawan chose to stay positive after what was a thoroughly disappointing day for Indian bowlers. (Scorecard | Day 4 Report | Day 4 Highlights | Pics )

"There is still one more day left tomorrow. We will try our best to win but even if we lose, there's a lot to learn from it. There is disappointment but we have played some good cricket, especially getting them out for a low score in the first innings," Dhawan said after the day's play.

"Then we batted well in tough conditions and basically dominated the match till yesterday. But today they turned the tables on us. Tomorrow in the morning, we will look to get them out and then whatever the target is, we will bat according to the situation," he added.
