Having returned home from Australia with their tails between their legs after a 3-0 Test series whitewash, the Black Caps are capable of turning their fortunes around against global giants India, says opening batsman Martin Guptill.
With defeats in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney, the Black Caps surrendered their status as the world's second ranked Test side to Australia.
They're now preparing for five T20 Internationals, three ODIs and two Tests against some of cricket's modern-day greats.
Strictly a white-ball player these days, Guptill wasn't involved in the Australian series, however he knows that there is a strong desire within the Black Caps to improve on their woeful showing across the Tasman.
"You never like watching your mates go through that hard toil," Guptill says. "It was a tough series for the boys.
"Once we get into camp next week, we'll be raring to go, and ready to put up some good performances against India."
The Black Caps begin their five match T20 series against India with two matches at Eden Park, before the series heads to Hamilton and Wellington, before finishing in Mount Maunganui.
