wind-swept Napier staring at a passive-aggressive Pacific Ocean it is and feels like the edge of civilisation A final frontier New Zealand is capable of having such an effect on a first-timer For the Indian cricket team too New Zealand was one such place for a long time It was surprising because on their first-ever trip to these shores under Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi in 1967-68 history was made as India won 3-1 This history to invoke a mandatory Lord of the Rings reference “became legend legend became myth” as lossespiled up in coming years It gave birth to more myths some of them don’t have much truth but still persist in our imagination: such as green-carpet tracks and juicy pitches But before we analyse here and now we ought to trace the origins of these notions which weren’t always mere notions When New Zealand in New Zealand were such a thorn in the Indian flesh that they perhaps still feel the prick It started with the final match of the second tour Richard Hadlee’s 11/58 in the third Test in 1976 made such a dent in Indian batsmen’s confidence that it would last and indeed grow bigger over the next three decades They would not win Test or ODI series here in five attempts even as the legend of near unplayable New Zealand tracks came into being and was reinforced Then in 2002-03 the Indians teetering over the brink on a few previous tours finally fell into an abyss Despite having set sail with a batting cast to rival a Hollywood multi-starrer they failed to go past 200 in four Test innings Or even in the subsequent five ODIs Six years later it was with these baggages and doubts that Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Co reached Napier to play the first ODI It was team that had learned to win away and among its achievements was the CB Tri-Series victory in Australia a year before It was a team that was shaping up to be the world champion it would become in two years’ time So on March 3 2009 on a surprisingly favourable strip at McLean Park India’s top order launched a rare assault on the Kiwi bowlers India won the match by 53 runs gathered momentum and crushed the Black Caps 3-1 for their first-ever ODI series win in the country Their march continued relentlessly in the Tests and India won the series 1-0 the first in 42 years Change of fortunes New Zealand’s spell was broken A few commentators however suggest that New Zealand themselves broke the spell They broke it for the BCCI they allege They say after the 2002-03 disaster the BCCI made its displeasure over the wickets used evident to New Zealand Cricket an objection that didn’t go unheeded the next time India visited The green carpet was gone the drop-in pitches were custom-built for the cherry to come nicely on Writing in the New Zealand Herald and exhorting New Zealand to revert to green pitches former Black Cap Mark Richardson asked the home team to “draw the line at creating pitches to suit them” “It appears for small fry like us playing India is like playing your boss at golf – do and say the right things but don’t beat them It’s okay for their perceived peers in Australia and England to beat them but to put them on seaming wickets here in New Zealand and stuffing them would be cricket’s equivalent of a kamikaze mission – successful yes but ultimately fatal” he wrote in his column for the paper “I say water up green up stand up and stuff them up this summer” With the series being played not as much with the 2015 World Cup in focus as it is with the IPL7 auction in mind not all New Zealand players would themselves agree with Richardson They stand more to lose here if the wickets are watered and greened up Batsman Corey Anderson has potentially added a couple of zeroes to their bank balance not by batting on the kind of wickets that Richardson is suggesting but by whacking about in small parks on belters Knowing that the IPL scouts will be waking up early and watching them bat Anderson will hope to reproduce such form once more while Guptill and Williamson will aim to emulate him Likewise there’s also a lot at stake for other New Zealand players who have not been retained: the McCullum bothers Ross Taylor Jesse Ryder and Luke Ronchi A knock or two in this series will do them a world of good On the other hand single-digit scores against Stuart Binny or Ishwar Pandey may mean paycuts or getting unsold On their toes India meanwhile seem to have come prepared The South Africa exposure must have prepared them for bowler friendly wickets while the early arrival here also showed they are taking the series seriously They don’t have too many IPL worries; for many of them it’s an opportunity to impress and stay in the mix for the Asia Cup World T20 and of course the ODI World Cup next year India play two matches here: against Ireland in Hamilton and against Zimbabwe at Auckland Normally these matches won’t give India sleepless nights but given they are the final matches of their group stage these fixtures may become crucial should anything go wrong in the Australia leg It could leave India on the edge both geographically and metaphorically For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by

a landing on the dark side of the moon by 2018 and reaching Mars before the end of the decade CNN reported The country’s space agency on Tuesday released a policy paper and outlined the government’s goals for exploring deep space Wu Yanhua deputy chief of the National Space Administration said Beijing aims to launch its first Mars probe around 2020 to carry out orbiting and roving exploration followed by a second mission that would include collection of surface samples from the red planet Wu said China’s other plans include sending probes to Jupiter and its moons “Our overall goal is that by around 2030 China will be among the major space powers of the world” he said China was late to the space race — it did not send its first satellite into space until 1970 just after the US put the first man on the moon But in the decades since China has pumped billions of dollars and other resources into research and training Since 2003 China has staged a spacewalk landed a rover on the moon and launched a space lab that it hopes paves the way for a 20-ton space station It has also sent five crews into space in the same span of time making it only the third country in the world — after Russia and the US — to have such success Wu said China was still studying the possibility of sending a man to the moon but focusing on robotic lunar missions for now including making the first soft landing on the far side of the moon around 2018 He also emphasised on China’s increasing cooperation with other space agencies — with NASA being the exception Since 2011 the US Congress has prohibited NASA from working with China because of national security concerns During his campaign US President-elect Donald Trump professed his love for NASA and that “space is terrific” His senior advisors have advocated a “new vision” for the US space programme “NASA should be focused primarily on deep space activities rather than Earth-centric work that is better handled by other agencies” wrote Robert Walker and Peter Navarro in October “While the American government’s space programme has suffered from under-investment both China and Russia continue to move briskly forward with military-focused initiatives” they added Read: NASA astronauts to conduct spacewalks for power update “Each continues to develop weapons explicitly designed… to ‘deny degrade deceive disrupt or destroy’ America’s eyes

that potential US-China collaboration in space would be unlikely — and probably even more so after Trump’s recent tweets challenging Beijing’s polices on issues ranging from Taiwan to trade and South
