Nehra is of the opinion that New Zealand, who recently beat India in the World Test Championship final, is at par with the Kohli-led side.

“If you go just by the numbers, the New Zealand team has defeated you when you talk about the WTC. Just like it is his thinking, I believe that they are ahead but along with them, when you talk about Test cricket for the last one to one-and-a-half years, the Indian and New Zealand team are neck to neck,” Nehra added.

With the win, India reclaimed the top spot in the ICC World Test Championship points table. India earned 26 points from the win and 58.33 per cent of the percentage of points (PCT). Pakistan and West Indies are tied at second spot with 12 points followed by England at the fourth spot.

These away points for India is very crucial going ahead in the new WTC cycle.

In a couple of days from now, India would take on England in the fifth and final Test at Old Trafford, Manchester. The Test starts on September 10.
