    new zealand tour is supposed to be tougher than australia.

    reasons:

    1) india has not been to new zealand in the last 6 years. almost all the players are visiting NZ for the first time

    2) india's performance in the last tour of NZ was pathetic

    3) conditions there are very tough ... tougher than australia. you dont get batting pitches in NZ like in australia.

    ya you are rite.........on all points.....

    and in NZ all the time winds are blowing so from one end if bowler can bowl on 135Kmph than from other end he get 5-6Kmph extra because of that wind factor........i read that somewhere on news paper by a player.........

    India can win because :

    1 ) Since past 2 years India is playing a lot better on foreign tours ...

    2) India managed to win the Perth test which is one of the most bouncy tracks......completely different to ehat we have in India

    New uniforms, strangely SAHARA is more easier to see, while INDIA is not that clear. Also too much orange.

    the new jersey has many features:

    1) new color - looks cool to me ... better than the previous one, unique

    2) the collar, numbers, text "India" - in orange color - good use of a true indian color - these things were previously in yellow

    3) the jersey is lighter than before

    4) more scientifically designed - will keep the bodies of players cool in humid conditions and vice-versa

    and above all - A change was needed .. that color was being used for many many years ... all teams have changes their jersey colors to different shades at some point of time or other ...

    I am really looking forward to this series..It will be a really good one. Indian team is in good form & the conditions in NZL won't be that easy. I always believed that its tough playing in NZL than playing in Australia & South Africa.

    The grounds in NZL are small, so it will to the advantage to our hard hitting batsmen...

    India is going to win this tournament big time, Indian team now under the coach Gary Kristen(used to be one of my fav players) is more balanced and confident. Players like rohit sharma,yosuf n irfan pathan, ishant sharma, dinesh kartik dhoni,sehwag provide a dynamic and strong look to indian team. I also wish Sanchin Tendulkar n dravid open up and do what the team needs them to do, i doubt it if tendulkar has anymore cricket spirit left in him moreover he doesnt fit well in the team now(saying all this about sachin with all due respect).

    Are you talking about tendulkar?? I mean who will say that there's no spirit left in tendulkar.. As rameshjee mentioned sachin has scored 3263 more runs than new-zealand team together... How many times he need to prove himself..

    Ofcourse you've all the right to say anything but in this context i don't agree with you, though you all said with all due respect to sachin

    1st T20 --- India Vs NewZealand

    Gambhir falls early but sehwag got blistering start.. 3 sixes on first 3 balls he faced..Damn good stuff from sehwag.. He's absolute butcher..

    P.S
    Sehwag gone for 26 in 10 balls.. India 32 for 2 in 3.1 overs.
