Reason for fear from Team India

New Zealand spinner Mitchell Santner feels it is difficult to beat India at home and it will be important for him to assess the conditions and contain Rohit Sharma in the upcoming World Cup clash against India. New Zealand has won all four of its World Cup matches played in Ahmedabad, Hyderabad and Chennai. Now they have to play against India in Dharamshala.

Santner said, “We know it is difficult to beat India at home. We have to assess the wicket in Dharamshala very well. He said, “The wicket has some pace and bounce. But how long this will last remains to be seen. Powerplay will be important while bowling. The way Rohit is giving him starts, we have to limit his bat. Santner said, “We have to take full two points and that is our target in every match, it does not matter which team is ahead. We have adapted well to the conditions so far in this tournament.

What did Santner say about India?

Talking about Indian pitches, Santner said, “Every ground we have played on is different. Even against India we will have to adapt to the circumstances. It is good to be on top of the points table before this match but it is a long tournament and it is important to keep our position strong. Santner, who has played in the IPL for Chennai Super Kings, was not new to the Chennai ground as he took three wickets and also took a brilliant catch. He said, “We have played on these wickets in the IPL. The pitch had more bounce and turn in this match.
