Hyderabad: New Zealand captain Ross Taylor is confident that despite losing the first Test against India here, his side can make a comeback in the series in the second and final game starting in Bangalore Aug 31.

Taylor said it was disappointing to be bowled out twice under 200 "but we have three four days to rectify that when we work and come back harder and stronger in Bangalore," he said after his team lost by an inning and 115 runs on the fourth day of the first test at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium here Sunday.

"Come back Bangalore, we need to be as positive as possible," he said.

He believes the team had to improve a little bit of technique. "Most of this is probably in the mind," said Taylor, who failed miserably in both the innings.

The Kiwi skipper gave India the credit for their all-round good show. He said India put lot of pressure on them by first scoring over 400 runs and then enforcing follow-on.

He said their bowlers did not bowl well for consistent period of time. He was all praise for Ravichandran Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha, saying they put lot of pressure on the New Zealand batsmen.

"When it turns it is a lot easier to play when it turns and bounce it is a different ball game," he said.
