The Kiwis are bound to be on cloud nine after an exhilarating performance at Nagpur, in which they simply tore apart the much feared Indian batting lineup. New Zealand now moves towards the northern part of India, to lock horns with Trans-Tasman rivals Australia in Dharamsala. Ahead of the all-important clash, New Zealand batsman, Ross Taylor has advised his team to not get carried away with the win in Nagpur.

 

“It was definitely a lot of happy team-mates after the game,” Taylor said. “But we don’t want to get too carried away. “It’s just one game in what is a short and condensed tournament. Lot of games to be played. The big positives were the way our spinners played. It was the first time we have got in with that balance. Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi bowled outstandingly well. We are accustomed to Nathan and his T20 record is outstanding but those guys are very inexperienced, to come out and play in front of such a big crowd in such a big game, they will take a lot of confidence.”

 

Taylor also spoke about the special rivalry against Australia and focused on the need for spin. “Anytime you play Australia they are a big brother I guess. They always had a lot of success against us in few games,” he said. “These are very foreign conditions to what we’ve played in Eden Park or MCG and you know it takes a spin. “Both teams in the past have their moments against spin. I think spin will have a big role to play tomorrow and whatever happened 12 months ago is gone and it is a new team that is looking forward to play in bigger matches.

 

“The rivalry still matters whatever sport it is. Be it cricket, rugby, hockey its always special for a New Zealander to win over there,” he said and pointed out that his side will be taking some confidence out of their victory in the Chappell-Hadlee trophy recently,” Taylor added.
