Rediff Test rankings
India could soon be second best
South Africa are still ahead of India, but the ordering is about to change. A series win in New Zealand should guarantee India the second place ahead of South Africa.
Rediff ODI rankings
India fail to break into top two
The Auckland defeat hurt; a Kiwis whitewash could well have taken India to the second place in the Rediff ODI Rankings.

It was the biggest challenge in front of me on my first foreign tour and I am happy to have performed well. Playing with legends of the game like Sachin takes away the pressure from you and helps you to perform.

Gautam Gambhir, who was named Man of the Match for the final Test as well as Man of the Series, said after the match.
