Ganguly on India's chances in New Zealand

February 20, 2009

Sourav Ganguly was India's captain the last time they toured New Zealand in 2002-03.

And the horror show that India put in -- many blamed it on the wickets -- still makes the 36-year-old circumspect about the Men in Blues' chances, despite of the fact that they have been a dominant force of late.

For the record, Ganguly and his men, coached by kiwi John Wright, had lost both the Tests inside three days and were thrashed 5-2 in the following one-day series.

"It will be tough," said Ganguly, trying to put caution ahead of aggression that has become synonymous with Team India in recent times.

"All the while we have been playing in the sub-continent. I hope everybody does well," he justified.

"India has been the team in form. The wickets did quite a bit when we toured New Zealand in 2002-03. I still feel they will seam around a bit, maybe not as much as they did last time. They know that they'll have to get 20 wickets."
