First topic message reminder :

After an exciting first test, the venue now shifts to Wellington for the 2nd test.
India would want to arrest the losing streak away from home. It now stands at 10 out of the last 11. 2 of the last 3 tests India played were classics, but they failed to come out at the right end despite doing some special things, like setting the world number 1 side a target over 450 and then bowling New Zealand out for 105. They would really want to correct that here.
As for New Zealand, this summer has been a good one. The won the test series against the West Indies, nearly whitewashed India in the ODI series, and won the first test as well. They would want to cap the summer with a big moment.
New Zealand will be without their best batsman for this crucial game. Ross Taylor is out on paternity leave, and that gives exciting prospect Tom Latham an opportunity. They are also set to give all-rounder James Neesham an outing on a pitch hat is expected to assist the seamers with spinner Ish Sodhi giving way. That means Kane Williamson has to play the led spinner role besides being the best batsman in Taylor's absence.
Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma, all produced good individual performances in the last test. As such it is unlikely that India would change anything around.

He's statistically the worst Test player to ever get 300. 

Since 2009 India's bowlers have had 15 individual scores of 200+ scored against them. 

The commentary team in NZ proclaiming McCullum as a genius...really he averages 38. Overrated.

He has never really been rated but i take my hat off to him for the last two Tests.

On his day, he can do it.
He got dropped 3 times. Innings was hardly of amazing quality. 

Aside from minnow bashing Bangladesh or bullying India, he's a very ordinary Test player.


Assuming that you are right then why dont more of the top quality batsman score more 5 or 600s?

while Gerry is obviously baiting you... That's a pretty poor rebuttal. More batsmen don't score 5 or 600 because that's an incredibly selfish thing to do. I'm sure Amla could have scored over 400 against England at the Oval, just as Clarke could have gone for over 400 against the Indians in Sydney

Gosh, those were the days!

Two England players with double centuries. Very Happy 

Keep Dhoni as the skipper please.
