Video - Taylor Expects India To Bounce Back

New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor expects India to bounce back strongly after his side won the first One-Day International in Napier by 24 runs.

Taylor scored 55 in 82 balls as New Zealand successfully defended 292 against a hard-charging India side, who were playing their first game of the tour.

The former captain says that the performance in Napier was an excellent one from the Black Caps as they made it three wins in a row following a brace of Twenty20 wins against the West Indies.

"I think it was a great all-round team performance (Napier win)," he said.

"We all performed our roles exceptionally well and you know, continued on from where we left against the West Indies in those Twenty20 games."

However, with a few more practice sessions under their belt, Taylor feels India will put up an even stiffer test in tomorrow's second game in Hamilton.

"But we know that India will be better for the hit out and you know, the Hamilton wicket is traditionally the slowest wicket we have here in New Zealand and I'm sure you know that will be a bit more to their liking."
