Dravid rates New Zealand ‘serious contenders’ for WC

Written by | January 28, 2015 | 0

New Delhi: Former India captain Rahul Dravid has described co-hosts New Zealand as “serious contenders” for the upcoming cricket World Cup starting February 14.

“I think they’ve got a really really good pace attack. That’s why you look at them and you think these guys are one of the serious contenders,” Dravid said on ‘Contenders’, a special World Cup build-up show on ‘ESPNcricinfo’

From being perennial dark horses New Zealand are being described as among the favourites and Dravid believes that the home pressure will not weigh too much on the Black Caps.

“I think with New Zealand it’s a much smaller country, sure they’ll expect their team to do well but you’re not going to talk about winning straightaway. I think the pressure is going to be less on the New Zealand players,” said the cricketer-turned-analyst.
