Chandigarh: On a high after winning the nail-biting first One-dayer to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series, Zimbabwe skipper Stuart Carlisle on Friday said India will struggle without maestro Sachin Tendulkar.
"India will face problems as long as Sachin is not in the team," Carlisle told reporters after landing here to play the second match a day-night encounter in Mohali on Sunday. Carlisle said his team was looking forward to win the second game and take a 2-0 lead. He said Zimbabwe has an advantage over India, which is without some of its senior players. Carlisle added he could not comment on the Mohali wicket as he had never played on the strip. The two teams arrived on Friday afternoon and moved straight to a hotel amid tight security arrangements.
