Summary

The Waz and Vicky Show: between them, they took 17 of the 20 New Zealand wickets to fall in Hamilton in 1993Five memorable Asian Test triumphs in New Zealand New Zealand have lost only five Tests at home to Asian teams since 2001. Of the 17 Tests New Zealand have lost to Asian opposition at home, three came in a single series to an Indian side that had, up until then, never won an away Test. The first match, the most absorbing Test of the series, set the tone, even if it didn't appear that way when New Zealand racked up 200 for 1 on day one. Medium-pacer Abid Ali starred with four wickets as New Zealand were kept to 350, but the notion that this win was a team effort was reinforced all through the Test for India - every batsman who came to the crease across both innings would reach double figures, even No. 10 Ramakant Desai, who fractured his jaw after being hit by Dick Motz, but still hung on to make an unbeaten 32. Since 1976, India have won twice as many World Cups as they have Test matches in New Zealand, which on its own should make this particular success notable enough. The way Sachin Tendulkar has batted on this tour, and in the matches leading up to it, it seems he has hit the kind of patch he did in the midIndia's first Test win abroad came in New Zealand 41 years ago.
