Default India in NZ 2009

Good news for India.

Last year BD visited NZ and in one innings they had an openning stand of 160+ in 44 overs. This can be inspirational. That even by 20 year olds visiting this sort of conditions for the first time. So if they apply themselves properly big scores is not hard to get. I am not sure why Tendulkar is worried. This will be his sixth/seven visit there.

Hope this will be a keenly contested tour.

India has a very bad record (recent )against the NZ .

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.

Would think India should win this series , the only think against it is its recent (espcially the last tour where they did miserably lost a 4 Test series 2-0 and ODI's 2-4 ) history

Better seam attack? Zaheer Khan is overrated an average of 34-35 is laughable for a seam bowler

i hate this kind of cockiness from anybody...even if you are playing a team like kenya/zim..there is a big difference between being cocky and and being confident..remember vettori's comment about beating bangladesh 3-0 and becoming number 2 in the world..

I think Indians will have a tough time playing in New Zealand in the swinging conditions as past south asian teams have encountered. It will be a good series and expecting a good fight.
If India want to prove they really are number one material, they gotta perform and win well away in tough NZ conditions.

For NZ, it will be interesting to see their freedom to go out and express themselves as if they have nothing to lose just like in Australia atm where they are doing really well. I hope Chris Martin gets back into the team though and that the selectors dont mind his magnificent batting Lol.

Good luck to both teams and hope to see a well fought contest all round.

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.

This time around things will be a little different. Because India is stronger in all departments. Especially our fast bowlers will make a difference.

What I like is that it starts with T20s and then ODIs and then test matches. By the time the ODIs start, India would be somewhat used to the conditions and by the time the tests start, we can expect them to play at their best.

I dont think we will see those kind of pitches again. But even if we do, I think we have the players to still win.

Easy man !! Discussions on forums dont win matches. In Zaheer's defense he has been the top 3 bowlers last year.I would rate Ishant in the top 5 on present form.If there are no injuries to these two I think India should be able to counter any curve balls( pitches like last time) from the New Zealender's


I wish Sreeshant was included instead of Munaf...


Will be a cracker of a series.India has to win to 'even claim' that it deserves to be equated with SA.A loss would push it along with lower teams like Australia .










P.S : The last statement was in jest.

Ausralimay still be ranked third but they are a 4th or 5th position team now

last night we needed 33 runs off 7 overs with two overs of power play

but even if we did beat australia no one woud of given us credit,

If someone like ishant played for New Zealand he woudn't be recognised at all

It was a no result as 20 overs needed to be bowled, we were ahead of the duckworth lewis anyway

why didn't bond go for the IPL...they would have given him loads of money???

at any rate, NZ have lost too many good players though they're newer guys have much potential...i think india will win easily. especially if ishant and zak get going.

but then again, i'd love nothing more than to see india get walloped, and ishant and zak get smacked around.

None is talking about Indian Batting! IShant/ Zahir themselves can't win it for India. The batsmen have to show character to survive and take the game up to the Kiwis if they want to win. Tendu/ Laxman/ Shehwag/ Dravid have to do it unlike last time. It's these 4 batsmen and those 2 pacers all have to live up to their reputation.

I think if 1 or 2 of those players play well, India should cruise. Remember sakib alone ALMOST brought them down.

I wish one of oour openers had Viru's mentality, They both have that gear but try to play to cute and fail 80% of the time.

Bad luck for Shewag getting out of a bad decision. He was batting at that time superbly.
Now a days umpiring quality has gone down sharply.

Weather looks great in Christchurch today, sun is shining and not a cloud in the sky(Well only the tinest amount of white cloud around), blue all over. I'll be off to the cricket in an hour or two wearing my beige Brigade top

Great to hear that man ..the last two matches were pretty frustrating.

Also I hope your trip to the ground changes your animosity towards the Indians man.Look closer they are nicer than you think , including Dhoni
