Hyderabad: They do not have encouraging results to show coming into the Test series against India but New Zealand all-rounder James Franklin is hoping that they will be able do well against the formidable hosts.
New Zealand were routed by the West Indies before coming to India in all three formats of the game but Franklin says with a few changes in the team and support staff, his side hopes to make a fresh beginning.
"We are coming from a tough tour of West Indies. But it's always a new beginning with a new coach (Mike Hesson) and a couple of new faces in the squad. I think the guys are looking forward to take on a strong Indian side in Indian conditions," Franklin told reporters here.
