Remember NZ is a very good ODI team. But in Test matches, I am expecting a good show from India. They have a good opening and middle order combo who balance each other and the team. RSharma is a better test batsman than ODI.

Its selfish batting of the openers that cost the series. Its evident that they were dominant at home and the real problem came up when they were tested overseas. 2 or 3 runs per over at the start is the slowest in at least a decade. Inability of rotating the strike is something never seen before by the Indians. Time to change the top order. Bowlers issues are well known, they are inexperienced and spin never works overseas.
