The 5-0 victory is huge, the team must carry momentum: Zaheer Khan

MUMBAI: former pacemaker Zaheer Khan On Monday, he described India's 5-0 T20I victory in New Zealand as a great achievement and said they should take the momentum to the three-game ODI series that begins on Wednesday.

The Indian team bleached New Zealand with a dominant screen, including that prevailing in two super overs.

When asked about it, Zaheer told reporters here: I hope things get better. New Zealand was having difficulties, they tried to find answers to beat this Indian team. But I feel that the 5-0 victory is a great achievement.

This is only the third instance when India bleached its opponents in the T20 series. India had left the West Indies blank 3-0 in 2019 and defeated Australia 3-0 in 2016.

They should take great pride in what they have done since New Zealand. It will definitely be a hard series (ODI) for New Zealand.

For India, it's about maintaining that momentum and building trust in the victories of pre-ODI series and test matches, he said.
