India v New Zealand, test match head to head. India vs New Zealand rivalry in test cricket has continued from the days of Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev to Richard Hadlee, John Wright and Martin Crowe. In days gone by, Kiwis would always prepare grassy wickets to demolish Indians, which has resulted in India winning only 1 test series in New Zealand untill 2009 tour when India, under MS Dhoni's captainship, recorded a series victory in Kiwiland after 41 longs years.

In turn, Indians too always prepared spinning paradise or completely dead pitches off which, Kiwi swing bowlers got no assistance and failed to take 20 Indians wickets to win a test match. In all, New Zealand have won only 2 test match in India, from 26 played. Needless to pin point - New Zealand have never won a test series in India!
