McCullum wants to take Providence pitch with him to Barbados

12:51 pm on 5 May 2010

The New Zealand cricketers' World Twenty20 campaign is moving onto Barbados for a clash with either South Africa or India on Friday, after the Black Caps qualified for the Super Eight stage with a win over Zimbabwe.

Nathan McCullum was named man of the match again after opening the bowling and taking three decisive wickets in one over as New Zealand won by 7 runs in the rain-affected match

McCullum's a little sad to now be leaving the spinner-friendly wickets of Guyana's Providence Stadium behind.

He'd like to take the Providence pitch with him to Barbados but says it's all about consistency and keeping on performing for the team, no matter what the conditions.

England have also qualified over Ireland.
