Mumbai:

Asserting that India will have to bat well to win the series in New Zealand, former India skipper Sourav Ganguly on Friday said lack of practice matches could be a concern for the team.

"The worrying aspect for the side is that there is no warm-up game. It's tough, especially when you are playing in Australia, England and New Zealand," Ganguly said.

Ganguly, who captained India during the disastrous tour to New Zealand in 2002, said the Kiwis were difficult to beat at home, but the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side had the wherewithal to perform the job.

"New Zealand is a tough side to beat at home but ours is also a good side," he said.

He also ruled out chances of joining any political party and contesting the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.
