New Zealand vs India 2020: India On The Verge Of Creating A Massive Record In Wellington


India and New Zealand will now lock horns in a two-match Test series starting from February 21 (Friday) at the Basin Reserve in Wellington. The Kiwis are a tough nut to crack in home conditions while Virat Kohli & Co have done well across the globe which will make the upcoming encounter a mouth-watering clash. Meanwhile, India will be on the verge of creating a massive record in the first Test. 

The top-ranked Test side has done exceedingly well in the last few years dominating the proceedings in all parts of the world. In 2019, they won their first-ever Test series in Australia and also recorded a series win in West Indies while coming close to winning in South Africa and England. India are also placed at the top in the ICC World Test Championship having won all the seven matches so far. 

With seven consecutive victories now, India are on the verge of scaling a spectacular record. A win in the first Test at the Basin Reserve in Wellington will help them achieve the feat. If India scripts a win, this would be the tied fourth-highest streak in the history of Test cricket.

However, the Kiwis will not give it easily as they are known to be a tough opponent in home conditions. India also don't enjoy a great record in the land of Kiwis; however, the current side is a lot confident to better the record. Skipper Virat Kohli also admitted that the upcoming series will witness tough competitions between both sides. 

“They are intense and very, very fit guys and they can keep going all day and test your patience, really skilled with what they do as both bowlers and batsmen and are brilliant fielders.” Kohli had said. 

Indian batsmen will have to apply themselves against a top-notch bowling unit which comprises of Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Kyle Jamieson, and Neil Wagner. If finally, Wagner fails to make it to the squad, New Zealand have added Matt Henry to their squad.
