Ready to fight against Kiwis, says Kirsten

Christchurch: Gary Kirsten is not worried about the seeming pitches in New Zealand and said that his team was well prepared to adapt to the situations that they may encounter during the tour.

'India had a plan in place for every challenge which they could face during the 47-day tour and it was just the question of doing the planning and basics right', said Kirsten

"We are aware of what to expect and are planning for that. Every wicket around the world might well be different. You are not going to find two wickets that are exactly the same," said Kirsten

"Everyone's talking a lot about the wickets, but the wickets I saw in the games against West Indies seemed to play really well. It is not something that will concern us too much," he added.

"But at the same time we know that if we stick to our processes well and do what we need to in terms of planning and preparation, and then execute them, we can be a difficult side to beat," Kirsten said.

"You have to go out there and do the business. We had a four-and-a-half hour session yesterday and another four-hour session today. We focus a lot is to make sure the guys are learning very quickly what they need to do. It might be a bit slow in match play but the seniors are passing on whatever information they can and we are doing our bit," he added.
