India would emerge as the runaway winners if they play to their potential and not worry about their opponents Zimbabwe in the upcoming two-match cricket Test series, according to vice-captain Rahul Dravid.
"If we play good cricket, we should win," Dravid said in the run-up to the first Test beginning here on Tuesday.
"We have got to play good cricket, focus on ourselves and not worry about the opposition."
"It is very important from our point of view to win the Tests against Zimbabwe and win them well," he said.
Dravid acknowledged the quality of Heath Streak and captain Tatenda Taibu in the opposition ranks but also admitted that they knew little about the rest of Zimbabwe team.
"Streak and Taibu have been around for a while, they have got some experience. But, to be honest, we don't know much about the other cricketers." Dravid felt the wickets at Bulawayo and Harare would be similar to the track they played in Mutare against the Board President's Eleven over the weekend. In that respect, he believed the three-day warm up game was a good work-out for his side.
