India have had some sort of bogey when it comes to touring New Zealand. Ahead of what is a gruelling tour of that country, the Indian Express spoke to four players who toured there in the past, asking them about their experiences. Sachin Tendulkar recently spoke about how tough the harsh windy New Zealand conditions are, and here Dinesh Mongia describes how difficult it was to stand still out in the middle while holding a bat. Tinu Yohannan, the former India fast bowler, says he had tears in his eyes when he was bowling in one match.
