  • Munaf responds to captain's call

    If Munaf Patel goes through the series with the same intensity and results, the final block of this largely settled team could fall into place

  • The batting needs to click - Vettori

    Daniel Vettori, the New Zealand captain, has criticised the team's showing and called for an improved performance in the second Test in Napier

  • Turning it on, Harbhajan style

    One of the criticisms that Harbhajan Singh has had to live with is his performance overseas. After all, how many times had he won India a Test outside the subcontinent? One has to strain the mind to think of such instances.

  • Ruthless Dhoni eyes series win

    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

  • India end drought with thumping win

    Harbhajan Singh took 6 for 63 - his best figures in New Zealand - to set up a ten-wicket win which gave India the first Test victory in 33 years in the country
