The Indian side under Mahendra Singh Dhoni is presently the best cricket team in the world and they would have little difficulty in crushing New Zealand, predicted former Pakistan captain Rameez Raja.

"They are the team to beat at the moment. They have this ability to adjust and adapt to all conditions and that is their greatest strength," Raja told PTI on Sunday.

The former Test opener, who is now a well-known commentator, said India's main strength was that they studied their opponents closely and executed their plans properly on the field.

"Their execution of plan is top class, courtesy their captain, (MS) Dhoni who has led the side from the front," he said.

Rameez said he would compare India's present team with the Pakistani side of the 90s.

"In those days we had a top class bowling attack and also strong batsmen. I see India in a similar position. But they have gone one step further that they have beaten Australia in Australia (in ODI) which we could not do," Rameez added.
