McCullum wants similar pitch in Auckland as in Dunedin and Wellington

1:37 pm on 19 March 2013

Despite complaints from the England camp over the docile nature of New Zealand cricket pitches, the Black Caps captain Brendon McCullum wants more of the same for the series decider in Auckland.

The third and final test begins at Eden Park on Friday, with the series level at nil all after weather induced draws in Dunedin and Wellington.

The England camp has complained about the docile nature of the Dunedin and Wellington pitches saying they lack pace and bounce.

The Eden Park drop in wicket is expected to have more life, if the one day T20 pitches were anything to go by and McCullum concedes that will suit England more than the home side.
