Early wickets the key to a place in the final says McKay

7:57 am on 19 August 2010

The Wellington pace bowler Andy McKay says early wickets are the key to the Black Caps chances of winning their second round robin match against India tonight and making the final of the one day tri series in Sri Lanka.

New Zealand convincingly won their opening match against India but then lost to Sri Lanka in game two.

Andy McKay says as the tournament's unfolded, with every game being relatively one-sided, a common theme's developed.

The Black Caps are on top of the table, ahead of India on net run rate, though they're outsiders to win the tournament.
