The visitors will take on the Kiwis in the second and final cricket Test starting here on Friday after losing the opener in Auckland by 40 runs within four days.
"We have been doing well as a team, but unfortunately we end up on the losing side. It is a new team, young players who have got only five-six matches under their belt. It takes a bit of time to settle down. The last Test we played, we fought back really nicely and even in the last innings, we batted really well. There are a lot of positives to take from the defeat and it helped in building our confidence," Dhawan told reporters at the pre-match press conference.
