"New Zealand are a fantastic side. They've got good bowlers and their recent performances have been really good. And especially at home, they'll know the conditions better than us and for some who have not played here it will be a challenge," Dhoni was quoted as saying by 'The New Zealand Herald'.
The Indian team arrived here on Monday for the five-match series which would be followed by two Tests in February.
