  • A draw will be a loss

    Sometimes a stalemate can mean more than the scoreline implies. For India it will be a question mark against their No. 1 status

  • Harbhajan slams Indian flatbeds

    Harbhajan Singh has criticised the Hyderabad pitch that was prepared for India's second Test against New Zealand, saying India is developing a reputation for batsmen-friendly pitches

  • New Zealand's grit holds them in good stead

    Their collective tenacity and professionalism has helped the visitors match up to the challenge of playing the world's No. 1 team

  • Flat pitch can't hide India's bowling woes

    The Hyderabad pitch may have been great for batting, but that shouldn't overshadow India's bowling problems

  • New Zealand not content with draws

    Daniel Vettori said he was "happy" with the performance but stressed that New Zealand were neither "satisfied" nor "content" with the 0-0 scoreline going into the final Test
