John Pennington and Chetan Narula catch up to review the fifth and final One-Day International and look ahead to the New Zealand-India Test series.
New Zealand finished the ODI series with a 4-0 win, which Chetan reflects on before talking about the two-day game that has just been completed in Whangerai.
After correcting JP on his pronunciation of Whangerai (silent W, in case you are wondering), he assesses how much India have taken from that game.
He then talks about what he has learned from talking to and hearing from Brendon McCullum, MS Dhoni, Ross Taylor, Trent Boult and Corey Anderson ahead of the opening Test, which begins in Auckland tonight (6th February).
