While the Chappell-Hadlee series has been won by Australia, a win in today's final one dayer in Wellington would give New Zealand a much needed boost ahead of the upcoming two test series.

The Blackcaps coach Mark Greatbatch admits the sides last two performances in Auckland and Hamilton, where they failed to bat their allotted 50 overs, were disappointing.

However he says today's game gives them another chance.
