Ronchi expects Black Caps response in ODIs


New Zealand are determined to put their abysmal performances in the Test series with India behind them when the one-day encounters gets under way on Sunday, according to Luke Ronchi.

The Black Caps were whitewashed 3-0 in the long form of the game as India dominated with bat and ball, their series win completed by a 321-run success in Indore.

Ronchi acknowledged that the tourists were nowhere near good enough, but hopes the upcoming five ODIs will see Mike Hesson's side be more competitive.

New Zealand are ranked above India in the 50-over format and Ronchi is confident they can quickly forget their Test drubbing.

"Our ODI cricket has been good for quite a while now," said the wicketkeeper-batsman.

"We did not play that well in this Test series but in the past we have done great job in Tests as well. 

"After losing 0-3 we are going to look at this ODI series and make sure we perform well and finish off the tour on a high.

"It's a completely different ball game now, completely different cricket, a cricket which we have been playing really well for a while now. Tests are gone now. We can't do anything about it.

"We are a good ODI team and if we can continue playing the way we have been, it's going to make for an interesting series."
