Sure enough, New Zealand would hold on to win the Test — their first victory over India in 12 years — and Forsyth confirmed that he would pay up in the bet he made against… himself?

The final result was one of the worst (and in a certain way, best) interviews I’ve ever watched.
As an aside: If you enjoyed this, you’ll likely get a kick out of Hot Pepper Gaming, a Youtube channel in which reviewers eat a pepper before giving their take on a video game.
