The New Zealand cricketers' go into their five match one day series in Bangladesh, starting this afternoon without a warm up match after both were rained out.

The Black Caps are using the series as part of their preparations for next year's World Cup and the batsman-wicketkeeper Brendon McCullum says he wants to continue last season's form and and score some match-defining runs in Bangladesh.

But with matches starting at half past nine local time McCullum says winning the toss is even more important than it is usually.
