McCullum doesn't want too many changes in test side

5:04 am on 29 January 2013

The New Zealand cricketers have arrived home with their minds firmly fixed on progressing from their one-day series victory over South Africa.

The Black Caps will now play England in three T20 internationals, three One Day Internationals and three tests.

While admitting they were outplayed in the test series in South Africa, captain Brendan McCullum is pleased with parts of their other games.

McCullum says some of the one-day guys might be knocking on the door of the test side, but he'd still like the core of the test side that played against South Africa to play against England.

McCullum says they're a better team for the tour of South Africa.

The English arrive in New Zealand tonight after beating India in the fifth and final ODI, to go back level with the Indians on top of the world one day rankings.
