India vs New Zealand 2016: Five records that can be broken during Test series

New Delhi: With some of the finest cricketers on show, the India vs New Zealand Test series promises to be a cracking one.

While Virat Kohli's team will be favorites on home soil, one cannot rule out the Kiwis.

Over the years, their performances have steadily improved and the upcoming contest could witness the resurgence of the New Zealand challenge in the sub-continent.

As two of the best teams in the world collide, here are five records that could be broken during the series.

Most tons by NZ batsman in Tests

Martin Crowe holds the record for scoring the most Test tons (17) by a Kiwi. Ross Taylor (15) and Williamson (16) can not just equal that record but even surpass it during the three Tests.

NZ winning their maiden Test series in India

The BlackCaps are yet to register a Test series win in India. The visitors will be desperate to turn a corner this time.

Ravichandran Ashwin becoming fastest Asian bowler to enter 200-wicket club in Tests

Waqar Younis scalped his 200th victim in Test No. 38. Ashwin currently has 193 wickets in 36 Tests. Considering the off-spinner's form and record in India, there is every chance he will break the Pakistani pacer's record.

Most consecutive Test series wins from captaincy debut by an Indian

If the hosts register a series win, Kohli will become the first Indian skipper to lead his side to four consecutive series since captaincy debut having played the whole series.

India posting their biggest Test series win over NZ on home soil

Should Kohli and co beat Williamson's men 3-0, it will be the biggest series win by India over New Zealand it home. The best so far has been a 2-0 win.
