Cricket Nirvana Live Streaming India vs New Zealand 2012

India couldn't have asked for a better start to this year's cricket season. After winning the world cup last year, India saw a drop in performances apart from a few good wins. But after IPL, India enjoyed a rest of more than a month which was followed by very good performance in Sri Lanka and now against New Zealand. India demoralised New Zealand in the first test by registering a very big win, thus reducing the claims of New Zealand being under dogs for this series. Now India certainly starts the second test match as favourites and only a magical performance from New Zealand can level the series.

Its turn for Bangalore now to host a match. Again the probabilities are high that we would see a dry turning pitch that would support Indian spinners Ojha and Ashwin. Dhoni would certainly be tempted to pick the spin duo again and why not? They crafted the easy win for India after Pujara scored a ton and help India score big in the first innings.

Ross Taylor has rightly stressed on a point that his team mates need to score tons if New Zealand has to play competitive test cricket. But even he himself couldn't contribute much and hence even he has to play well in the second test. On the other hand Dhoni has lately informed that he is no mood to experiment with the playing eleven. So we can expect the same team that won the first match. Pujara who was hit on his knee while fielding at the short leg position remained doubtful for the second match. But as per Dhoni's decision to play same eleven and Pujara's batting sessions in the nets confirms that Pujara will play.

India has won both the test matches played against New Zealand here at Bangalore. So not only the current form but even history here at Bangalore supports an Indian win.
