India close to win in Nagpur Test Match

NAGPUR: After first two rather boring draws and spectacular bating display by Harbhajan Singh result of the third test match in Nagpur between India and New Zealand is going to be different from the first two matches. After long and solid innings by Rahul Dravid and Dhoni, who unfortunately missed the century and got out at 98, India is again close to another test win and a series Victory. This is going to strengthen India's position at no.1 in ICC Test Rankings and going to leave them unbeaten in 2010.
