These are the things I would like from the New Zealand test series
1) Balaji in the XI and swinging it
2) Rahul Dravid in ‘the wall’ mode eking out run after run while the likes of Sehwag and Gambhir flash away
3) The Zaheer-Ishant new ball combination bowling amazing spells
4) Less hype around Dhoni and his (apparently) wonderful captaincy
If all this doesn’t happen, I’ll settle for a glorious Laxman hundred.
