"You know going over there you have to perform otherwise you get dealt a pretty harsh lesson, so it's important for us to adapt quickly".

He also talked about the various roles that players would take up considering the scoring rate would be a key.

The foreign environment for the visitors means adapting quickly will be vital.

Recognised as an opener, the Black Caps batsman will bat in the middle order on New Zealand's limited overs tour of India, while donning the wicketkeeping gloves. "We're going to rely a lot of the experience of our senior players".

Hesson, and the thinktank, are also planning to develop a different approach than what they adopted last time.

The Kiwis have already announced a nine-man squad for the India tour, constituting the likes of Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Adam Milne, Trent Boult and the rest of the squad will be selected from the New Zealand A side which is now playing India A in Vishakhapatnam. "We have got three others on the New Zealand A tour there (in India), so we will have a look at them and make a decision over the next few days".

Hesson said the Virat Kohli-led Indians showed their potency in the recent 4-1 ODI series win over Australia.

"Glenn's certainly a wicketkeeper, he has kept for New Zealand Under-19s, he has kept for Auckland in all formats, he played for us in the T20 against South Africa [in February] A very good batsman in his own right and also a developing keeper".

"But Tom is the most experienced of the keepers".

"It would be fair to say Martin and Tom, although they have had some really good performances individually, they haven't really clicked at the top and certainly haven't generated a strike-rate as a pair that we would like". The beauty of Colin is he is a boundary hitter.

New Zealand will start their tour with two warm-up games against Board President's XI in Mumbai on October 17 and 19 before the three ODIs and three T20Is.
