Indian team started their campaign in New Zealand clinically, with a thumping 5-nil whitewash victory in the T20I series.
However, the Indian juggernaut seems to be derailed, with losses in the ODI series as well as the opening Test match at Wellington.
The Black Caps humbled the visitors with a comprehensive 3-nil victory in the ODI series and handed a 10-wicket bashing in the Wellington Test.
Former Australian chinaman bowler, Brad Hogg, claimed that the Indian team was ruthless in the first leg of the tour, but then went into vacation mode during the last few matches in New Zealand.
Further, Hogg affirmed that the Indian team has its share of troubles in Test cricket, playing away from home in New Zealand.
Also, the veteran Australian spinner, maintained that the Indian team has their task cut out to cope up with the seaming ball in the upcoming Test match at Hagley Oval.
After the drubbing at Basin Reserve, India lost its fourth match on the trot during the ongoing tour of New Zealand.
“India still has there troubles in New Zealand in test cricket. Batsmen have five days to find a way to play the seaming ball before Christchurch. The first two weeks they meant business, the next four weeks are turning into a sightseeing tour. #thetraveller #BCCI #INDvNZ #NZvIND,” Hogg tweeted recently.
