Bangalore: Struggling New Zealand captain Ross Taylor urged his batsmen to put up a brave front and adopt aggressive approach to counter Indian spin duo Ravichandran Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha in the second Test beginning Friday.

"We have to talk among ourselves about tackling Ojha and Ashwin. We have to be brave and courageous to attack them.

"Then there wouldn't be too many people around your bat hopefully," he told reporters here.

Taylor wants aggressive approach against spin

The New Zealand captain wants his batsmen to attack Pragyan Ojha and R Ashwin in the second Test starting Friday.

Taylor said his team does not want to look far behind where they lost as many as four Test matches out of five, but desired to look ahead, focusing session by session. Replying to a question, Taylor said he was working hard to get back among runs and the time was not far away.

"Two 100's in last 30 innings is not great, but I feel I am not far away from making runs. Sometimes you score two centuries in 30 innings and two in couple of innings," he said.

Taylor said he did not wanted to get carried away by the greenish look of the pitch at the Chinnaswamy Stadium and expressed doubts that the groundsmen would even shave off the grass before the play begins.

Taylor said he would field same squad which played at Hyderabad and it would be an opportunity for the players to showcase the team's ability.
