Black Caps get advice from Andre Adams

12:47 pm on 5 June 2013

The New Zealand bowlers got some inside information on the Trent Bridge wicket from former New Zealand bowler Andre Adams ahead of the third one-day international against England tonight.

The Black Caps are 2-0 up in the series after a couple of dominant performances at Lord's and Southampton, and the New Zealand selectors could well go with the same lineup as captain Brendon McCullum has said he wants to win the series 3-nil.

Fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan has been a big part of that , taking five wickets so far and steaming in at the start of the innings.

McClenaghan says it was good to chew the ear of Adams, who has been at Nottinghamshire since 2007.

McClenaghan says it's important they win tonight to take momentum into the Champions Trophy.

The pressure is all on the home side, and England are again expected to be without injured bowlers Steven Finn and Stuart Broad, while Dan Vettori is still unavailable for New Zealand.

The last time England were whitewashed in an ODI series at home was in 2006 when Sri Lanka beat them 5-0.
