I agree with you about Ishant average, but your last statement about NZ bowler's is not right, it is India who is playing bad shots and getting out and not NZ bowlers are bowling exceptional and who is unplayable. If NZ s shuch a good Test tesm them it will not stand in #8 position in ICC ranking.

I can still bet Ishant is not the good and consistent bowler. Look at his test average before anyone supporting him. I will still support all those Ishant haters. Dont ever ever compare him with Kapil and other good bowlers. Get your facts first.. Remember he got 6 wicket in 1st Test and still india does not win. A good fast bowler should take wicket even when the wicket is not helping them and NZ fast bowler will show Ishant how to do that during the 2nd day when the pitch behave opposite way during the 2nd day.
