Hyderabad:Stylish batsman VVS Laxman on Monday said defeating New Zealand in their own backyard would be a tough challenge for the Indian team but he was ready to play match-winning knocks for his side.
"We have a challenge in defeating New Zealand in New Zealand. If we play to our potential, then we will definitely win both Test as well as one-day series.
"I would like to contribute to the team winning the Test series. I want to adapt to whichever situation. I will have to play match-winning knocks," he told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.
Laxman said Team India was high on confidence after their string of good shows.
"It is an important series for the Indian team. Last time we went there in 2002, we had no idea about the conditions. But Indian team has done well and won matches all over the world since 2002. We are now performing well overseas too. We are high on confidence ahead of the tour," he said.
Replying to a query, Laxman said the recent change of colour in team dress was "fashionable in style".
"It's a very good design and styling is also good. Cricket is a form of entertainment if the clothing is good and fashionable, it is good for the spectators to view also," he said.
