In another display of pure awesomeness, the Indian cricket team won the first test. Winning a test after a whopping 33yrs in NZ, team India look all set to win the three match series!

Harbhajan took 6 wickets to restrict NZ to 279 (again! wonder how many times that has happened?!). This left India with 39 to win which was chased down bya blazing Gambhir (30*, 6x4s) and surprisingly Dravid! (was hoping to see Sehwag actually). Tendulkar was man of the match for his 160. He donated the money to the Tiger conservation fund – a real nice gesture one must appreciate. Dhoni gave a classic post match interview in which he stated the importance of team contribution, finding the right length, taking the aggressive decision of bowling first. Overall a clean n professional performance – outclassing NZ in all respects. A well deserved win!

Final scoreboard

The next one in Napier also promises to be a batting delight… hopefully India will win that too…

    Inspite of this purely dominant performance, I can’t help pointing out the fact that defeating NZ by an inning was very much in sight. It has again showed our weakness..inability to dismiss the bottom order quickly. It was fine in this match, but in a neck to neck fight this could cause trouble.
