Black Caps relaxed despite winless run

The New Zealand cricketers say they're unfazed at not having won a test this year, as they prepare to face the West Indies in the second test starting on Wednesday in Wellington.

Black Caps batsman Peter Fulton says despite not being able to close out a couple of crucial tests in the last 12 months, there's no need to go back to the drawing board.

Fulton says he's never seen the Basin Reserve pitch as green as it is two days out from a test, and expects it to offer the bowlers a lot more in terms of pace and bounce.
