We all know that India beat New Zealand last year at home. Though New Zealand did well in the test series, they lost 5-0 in the India vs New Zealand ODI series. Well, we also have to consider that some of their good players were injured during that series and were not able to play in all the matches. However, a loss is a loss.
New Zealand will really have to do something in this Cricket World Cup. After losing the test series to Pakistan in New Zealand, they are currently down 2-1 in the ODI series. I thought New Zealand will at least do well at home. I was wrong. New Zealand has definitely disappointed me with their game play.
After getting a new coach, John Wright we hope things will be good for New Zealand. John Wright is the ex-coach of India and he is well versed with Indian conditions. I am sure that will be a great advantage for this team. But you gotta perform first to win any match. His experience will only help them knowing the conditions well.
India, the favorites to win the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 is a great unit. They have a great, well balanced team. All the players look in good form and especially when all the matches are being played in India, this team will definitely do well.
