Vettori promises hard fight

Mar 25, 2009: Daniel Vettori knows the public deserves better than what happened in Hamilton, a tame defeat in four days. It's not the loss that hurts them as much, but the manner in which they lost

Ruthless Dhoni eyes series win

Mar 21, 2009: In the end it didn't seem like it had been 33 years in coming. The Indian team hadn't lined up at the picket fence waiting for the winning runs nor did they rush onto the field to soak up what they hadn't experienced on several previous tours - a Test win
