Expect an extraordinary and enthralling ODI and Test series in New Zealand. This Kiwi team has more than what meets the eye and India will not be able to bulldoze their way to glory.
Brendon McCullum, who was born a couple of months before from MS Dhoni, has a pretty strong horoscope. Astrologically, New are formidable as strong as Team India. While Dhoni has achieved all that there is to achieve, McCullum still has some unfinished business. The Indian team comprises many stalwarts who have been part of historic victories at the international as well as IPL level. That doesn’t hold true for the Kiwis.
Expect the five-game ODI series and two-match Test rubber to be fought on an even keel. Some extraordinarily talented players will stand out and riveting cricket will be on display. Impossible targets could be surpassed and there may be some dramatic collapses too. In the ultimate analysis, New Zealand have their noses ahead with a decent chance of avenging the defeat they suffered in 2009.
