The perfect execution of plans against India has pleased New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson but he refused to term his team’s 10-wicket win as “bouncing back” from their 0-3 debacle against Australia.

New Zealand came into the series after their nightmare in Australia and put up a splendid performance to outclass India in just over three days.

“Bouncing back isn’t a term we use within our group. You can get carried away thinking about results (especially) when you have a number of poor ones and sometimes the want (urge) for a good one can be a distraction towards getting (achieving) it,” Williamson said after the first Test here on Monday.

The Kiwi skipper, who also was the top-scorer for his side with a well-made 89, seemed satisfied with the performances of every player.

“So it’s about focussing on things that are important. The roles that give us the best chance of success and if we do that, the result manifests and I think that’s what we saw in this game and that was what was pleasing,” Williamson said.

“It was a really brilliant all-round game for us. Guys were really committed to their roles on a surface that offered enough to create a good balance between bat and ball. It’s a really important lesson moving forward to Christchurch,” he added.

But Williamson also wants to guard his team against complacency as he expects India to come hard in the second Test, starting February 29.

“The challenge is there in front of us because we know come Christchurch we will need to be on our game again. India is the number one in the world for a reason and they have had success all around the world,” he said.
