Draw not on the cards Tuffey ahead of third cricket test in Napier

5:55 pm on 9 December 2009

New Zealand pace bowler Darryl Tuffey says despite suggestions the third cricket test against Pakistan, starting at McLean Park in Napier on Friday will end in a draw, he believes there'll be a result that'll decide the deadlocked series.

The two sides are level at one all after Pakistan levelled the series with a comprehensive second test win in Wellington on Sunday.

McLean Park tends to be a batsman's paradise, in fact batting first against India in March New Zealand made over 600 runs having to bat only once in that drawn test.

Tuffey says there's plenty of determination in the side to win and they want to make the most of one of the few opportunities New Zealand gets in winning a test series.
