No letting it go now: Ganguly

March 14, 2003 22:55 IST

Blowing the war-horn for India, skipper Sourav Ganguly declared that his team mates have found their winning ways and would not let go the momentum.

"We have played very well in the tournament so far and we don't want to let it (the winning streak which stretched to seven after today's victory) get away," Ganguly said, after India laid to rest the ghosts of their disastrous New Zealand tour on underprepared pitches by overcoming the Kiwis by seven wickets in a World Cup Super Six match in Centurion on Friday.

He said the important matches for the team are now just around the corner and urged his players not to relax.

Ganguly once again commended the sterling performance of his bowlers and fielders, who restricted New Zealand to a low score of 146, which came immediately after their humbling of Sri Lanka, who were dismissed for 109 on Monday.

The skipper, who won the toss and put the Kiwis in to bat in a surprising move, said he had made the decision on the basis of his team's earlier experience at SuperSport Park.

"This was our third game on this wicket and I had a feeling the ball would come on to the bat better in the second half," Ganguly said.

Man of the match Zaheer Khan, who took four wickets for 42 runs, said he is glad that he is finally bowling to his potential.

"I was the one (among the three pacemen) who was not bowling up to my best, but today I came good.

"We (himself, Javagal Srinath and Ashish Nehra) are now clicking as a unit," Zaheer added.
