Watch cricket highlights – India vs New Zealand Day 4 Highlights of the 1st Hamilton Test played on March 21, 2009.

Scoreline: NZ 279 all out – Brendon McCullum 84. India 39/0 in 5.2 overs win the 1st Test.

With Harbhajan Singh hauling 6 the NZ innings did look like it would head towards an innings win for India. A fine knock by McCullum however forced India out to bat again. Dhoni however made some strange decisions with NZ 8 down – the field was spread for Brendon who refused singles and easily found them off the last couple of balls of the over. In fact it took 11 overs before Ian O’Brien got to face the first ball of an over. With McCullum if he wants to hit a boundary mroe often than not he will. What’s the point in trying to save the runs or offer him a single which he repeatedly shows disinterest in. Anyway a good win for India considering its taken something like 33 years for them to win a test in New Zealand.
