IND vs NZ: The last time India visited here, it was a massacre for them as they could not win a single one-dayer from 5 attempts and lost the Test series as well. But this time around, with some confidence on their back, India would look to turn the tables around and put up a better show.
After creating history down-under, the caravan of Indian cricket will move around 4200 km to the land of Kiwis for an exciting tour which will include 5 ODIs followed by three T20Is. The Blackcaps, on the other hand, are in an awesome form as they have won last 5 ODI series at their home. They are brutal at their home with their latest victim being Sri Lanka who were taken down abruptly in Test by 0-1, ODIs by 3-0 and the lone T20I by 1-0.
