"I'm very very hopeful of success against New Zealand. We've just come back from a tough tour of South Africa, losing both Test and ODI series. We have seen India doing well after a difficult tour.

Ganguly said Kiwis lack the experience of pacers Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel and is an inferior side. "They don't have (Dale) Steyn or (Morne) Morkel in their side. New Zealand are an inferior side in comparison to South Africa. If their coaches are intelligent enough, they would have out and out greentops," Ganguly said.
