India's cricket coach Gary Kirsten is not unduly worried about the seeming pitches in New Zealand and said that his team was well prepared to adapt to the situations that they may encounter during the tour.
Kirsten said that India had a plan in place for every challenge, which they could face during the 47-day tour, and it was just the question of doing the planing and basics right.
"We are aware of what to expect and are planning for that. Every wicket around the world might well be different. You are not going to find two wickets that are exactly the same.
"So we are not really focusing on the wickets. But we are doing the work we need to do. We are looking to adapt to the situations that we are confronted with. The team is well-balanced and our seamers have done particularly well in the last year," Kirsten told reporters on Sunday.
"Everyone's talking a lot about the wickets, but the wickets I saw in the games against West Indies seemed to play really well. It is not something that will concern us too much," he added.
