Legendary New Zealand player Martin Crowe has said that India should be prepared to face an even tougher test series ahead. He also felt that the guests will likely be more humiliated in the longer version of the game. As the result of the one day series went hugely in favor of the hosts, the players will be very relaxed by now and it will give them an edge in the upcoming games. He lamented that more tests could have given a better chance to enjoy the game between these two sides.
Kohli, Pujara from India, Williamson and Ross Taylor from New Zealand would be key, he felt. “Whoever scores the most hundreds between the four will hold the upper hand, for they will deny and dent the ability of the opposition’s attack to clear out both innings to win,” Crowe opined.
