A glance at the list of all time leading wicket takers in the Test match arena will thoroughly substantiate the point that I will be making in this piece.
When Australia visited India in early 2001 at the back of 15 consecutive Test wins (a world record), Steve Waugh's gladiators were the men to beat in the international arena.

The Kiwis are visiting India after a gap of 7 long years and with a humiliating series loss against Bangladesh in the back if their mind, it will take a huge task for Daniel Vettori and his men to beat an in form Indian side which would look to consolidate their position at the top of the Test rankings.
