IND v NZ, 2nd Test, Napier: India looks for series win

New Zealand face an uphill battle to deny India a rare Test series win on New Zealand soil when the teams begin the second Test in Napier on Thursday.
Having claimed their first Test victory in New Zealand in 33 years in emphatic fashion in Hamilton, the visitors are poised to end a run of series defeats dating back to 1967-68. Given the talent at captain MS Dhoni's disposable and the vast experience key players such as Sachin Tendulkar (157 Tests), Rahul Dravid (132), VVS Laxman (103), Virender Sehwag (67) and Zaheer Khan (63) possess, it would be a brave person who backed against the in-form and confident Indians to end their poor run in New Zealand.
Black Caps wicket-keeper Brendon McCullum admits the home side cannot match India for experience but insists they are gaining plenty from the batting master-classes being given by the tourists. New Zealand's top six - Tim McIntosh (three), Martin Guptill (one), Daniel Flynn (10), Ross Taylor (15), Jesse Ryder (seven) and James Franklin (24) - have just 60 Test caps between them.
McCullum has also called for greater application and determination from his team-mates after the selectors opted not to make wholesale changes despite plenty of below-par performances in Hamilton.
