In this podcast, we look back at India’s tour of New Zealand in 1998-99.
India had pulled off a thrilling Test series win against Australia at home earlier in the year, followed by some memorable wins in ODI tournaments. There was a disheartening loss in the one-off Test in Zimbabwe before the NZ series.
Simon Doull’s spell from hell,
Azhar’s brilliant back-to-the-wall century,
The Nash-Vettori partnership that took the game away,
Tendulkar producing yet another dazzling century at his peak – one that would be largely forgotten when compared to two of his career-defining Test hundreds either side of the series,
A Boxing day Test without a tradition,
McMillan’s short balls,
Dravid’s twin hundreds.
