Ross Taylor Chennai, Feb 17(ANI): New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor has said that despite the heavy defeat in the warm-up game against India, his team was capable of progressing deep into the World Cup.

“We need to bat and bowl and field well and at the moment we’re not doing all the facets as well as we would like, but I still have confidence in the team that we can get the performances that we want,” the New Zealand Herald quoted Taylor, as saying.

The stand-in captain also reiterated his prediction that spinners will play a crucial role in the tournament in the Indian sub-continent.

“The spinners are going to be key. When chasing seven or eight an over it is always tough when ball turning square, but in saying that we need to find a way of scoring runs and scoring those runs quickly,” Taylor said.
