...the match I'll always remember was the second test against India in Bombay. We weren't expected to win the match and conditions didn't really suit us, and we looked like losing that match on two or three occasions and the guys held together for five days. It was a tremendous team effort. It was a great thrill.– New Zealand cricket captain John Wright, on one of his most memorable matches
