Black Caps study up before cementing final plans


The Black Caps will study the pitch and the history books today before cementing their final plans for tonight's Twenty20 series decider against England in Wellington.

Teams batting second have won all four T20 internationals at Westpac Stadium while the slightly bigger boundaries might open the door for spinner Ronnie Hira to join the team.

Captain Brendon McCullum says they need to be at their best to claim an important series win.

McCullum says they need to make sure the choose the right game plan and then execute it.

He says his team needs to back up their strong performance to show they can be consistent.

Meanwhile England bowler Steven Finn's been labelled a serial offender at knocking off the bails at the non-strikers end when he bowls having continued his form in the first game of the New Zealand series.

The lanky seamer says he's been working on the problem for the last four months and he's making improvements.

And he says New Zealand's attitude makes no difference to them.

Finn says they just focus on their skills and to repeat the template from the first game.

The game starts at 7pm.
