Well there has never been any doubt about that.. you just need to look back at recent 8-0 against england and australia. They have never won a series in SA or Aus and their record outside subcontinent is abysmal.

Good to see NZ are fighting back. They might not win, but this is the fight we want to see. Hope that the rest of the lower order gives fig as well and key is to knock a few early Indian wickets back.

great to see NZ fighting, this is what they were always known for, it's why they were a good team because they always fought. hope van wyk and bracewell can keep it going.

Just 4 from 41 balls! I understand the match situation but this is shockingly tentative stuff from SRT. Anyway, Sehwag, Kohli, Raina and Dhoni will put enough runs on the board for the hosts to take this one. The rapidly degraded pitch won't do New Zealand any favor by the time they bat again.

I don't understand this heinous umpiring, any marginal lbws for nz and umpires are trigger happy especially steve davis, but when india bats, all the 50/50 calls go to india, where is the justice?

Chokedulkar gags again (when his side is in trouble)! How characteristic! This guy must have scored more meaningless runs than the rest of the world combined! Lets see if Kohli becomes an anti-Tendulkar match-winner...

Sehwag's a hit-or-miss player who hits more than he misses. He usually turns his 50s onto easy 100s. So dismissing him short of 50 was incredibly important for the Black Caps. SRT pulled a classic DaRok today. Got his @$$ bogged down before getting himself out playing a flurry of low percentage, premeditated shots. A straight ball dismissal at this stage of his fabled career is simply too F-ed up! Some folks at ICF must be calling for his head by now.

Anything from the quick scoring Raina is a plus but the real partnership threat would be the one between Kohli and Dhoni. New Zealand would have a great chance to lead and then build on it as long as they don't allow that partnership to happen.

The 3rd umpire saves Raina on a marginal no ball. Kohli has been playing some seriously classy shots.

Important test for Raina and his country. Let's see if he can "kanwert" this to a . He better score as many as he can at home because he sucks on pacier and bouncier wickets outside the subcontinent.

Manjrekar and Kumble are a couple on nice guys with immense cricket knowledge and insight, but boy are they BORING! The final session starts.

Raina's almost always off balance.

Raina's looking shaky. Taylor would do well to unleash Southee on him.

Raina edges a legside delivery back to the diving keeper. Finally New Zealand gets lucky. They'll be in the driver's seat if they can get Dhoni nice and early.

vettoris recovering from injury, but he will be good for the t20s. also ryder is taking a break from cricket, he will be back at the end of the year, and then we can get rid of flynn and patel.

raina is a no no for the test format, india has many better prospects imo. anyway a good half century for him. glad virat is starting to score more consistently, he's going to be a force in tests i tell you.

Solid recovery by India thanks to some clutch batting from Sehwag, Kohli, Raina and Dhoni. Hard to beat a team that bats as cohesively they just did in a difficult situation.

even still there is a bit of talk that sehwag should drop down the order or even go play fc domestic as a middle order and comeback if he scores runs. india do need to transition through past sehwag and tendulkar but you have to think with dravid going not that long ago and laxman having just gone should sehwag and tendulkar stay around even if performance doesn't warrant it? the kids need guidance. i think keep tendulkar and either sehwag goes or he plays at #6 that way they can blood and groom another young opener (rahane or mukund). as usual though, india is spoilt for batting talent, chand is coming through as another good opener, gambhir still has some years left in him then there is tiwary, sharma, reddy and a few other middle order talents.
