Black Caps captain wants more sting in bowling attack

The New Zealand cricket captain is demanding his bowling attack emulate their South African counterparts in the second test starting tonight in Port Elizabeth.

The Black Caps have preferred Otago's Neil Wanger over veteran Chris Martin and Brendon McCullum says Wagner has impressed with his venom in the nets this week.

McCullum says his bowlers were okay in the first test whereas more assertiveness is needed.
