Added to that NZ usually prepares the worst of pitches for the Indians.I am not sure that they would do that this time around as the Indians (I think) have a better seam attach than the NZ'landers.
The seaming wickets like last time is always to the NZ's advantage as it will neutralize the difference in the batting of the two sides and make the comparative quality of seam attack almost irrelevant. Even last time, it was not Bond who did most of the damage but the next level bowlers like Tuffey and Oram.

It is somehow always ignored how critical the toss was last time. India was to put in to bat after NZ won the toss on both matches, and NZ had the easier batting conditions on both occasions.
