One good spell and we'll win the match: NZ coach

Napier:

The Kiwis will need only a couple of good catches and a special spell by any of the bowlers on Monday to clinch the second Test against India, New Zealand coach Andy Moles said here on Sunday.

Moles conceded India have batted themselves back into the match by losing just one wicket in 90 overs on Sunday but felt New Zealand can still win the match.

"There is only team that can win this game and that is New Zealand. It is not often that we have been in that position. We hope a little bit of luck goes our way tomorrow and we get the opportunity to push to the win that we deserve," said Moles.

"Obviously, a draw would be the favourite. But it only takes a couple of good catches and a special spell by somebody," he added.

Moles reckoned the task would not be easy but felt getting a few quick wickets was all his wards needed.

"This is an exceptionally good batting wicket and they have got some great players who played well on it. If we can get our intensity right and hit the right areas we could turn it our way. All we are looking for is two or three mistakes and we will be into the Indian tail.

"As we saw in the first innings, they have got a magnificent 5-6 at the front. If we bowl well and things go our way we can get quick wickets," he said.
