Can India make it 5-0?

India will bring off a 5-0 series win if they beat New Zealand in the 5th and the final one-dayer at Chennai.

Though it is easy to fall into the trap of judging the Indian team highly based on their performance, one has to admit that they certainly performed much better than expected.

Actually, there is nothing to stop this Indian team completing a white wash. With the curator expressing confidence on Chepauk’s drainage system, barring incessant rains, a full match is likely. The fans in Chennai would dearly love to see Murali Vijay and Ashwin in fine form in the final one-dayer. However, it is unlikely that both will play the match.

The one area of concern is the bowling at the death. Similarly, if Lady Luck decides to smirk instead of smile at them then in a way it is good as the Indian team can go to South Africa with the law of averages favoring them.
