Prasanna, Borde predict series sweep for India in New Zealand

#1
New Delhi (PTI): Former cricketers Erapalli Prasanna and Chandu Borde, who were part of the Indian team that last won a Test series in New Zealand in 1968, feel Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men will sweep the ongoing series with Sachin Tendulkar playing a vital role in the triumph.

"On the basis of present form, I can say that India may clean sweep or win by 2-1. There is no reason why we can't win from here," said the former off-spinner, who took 25 wickets in four Tests 41 years ago when India last recorded a series win on the Kiwi soil.

Dhoni's team beat New Zealand by 10 wickets in the first Test to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series, taking the first step towards possibly the first series triumph in New Zealand since 1968.

Borde, who scored 242 runs in the 1968 series, felt Kiwis have an uphill task against the rampaging Indians. "I feel that this team is complete in all departments. It is always encouraging to win abroad. Team India is among the best in world cricket now and when batsman like Sachin are in top form, no one can stop them," he said.

Both the players believe that Tendulkar, who scored a hundred in the Hamilton Test, will play an important role in the next Two matches as well.
