Five days a Test for success: Greatbatch

Making a Test match last five days will count as success on New Zealand's upcoming three-Test and five-one day cricket tour of India, says coach Mark Greatbatch.

The Black Caps have left for India to play the world's top ranked Test side, having recently lost a one day series to the world's lowest ranked team, Bangladesh.

Greatbatch says the side owes it to New Zealand fans to show they're better than their performances in Bangladesh.

The first Test begins in Ahmedabad on Thursday.
