Vettori wants to see Kiwi improvement

New Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori wants to see a vast improvement in his team after reaching the Super Eights thanks to their 9 wicket Duckworth Lewis victory over Zimbabwe.

Nathan McCullum and Scott Styris both took three wickets as the Kiwis skittled out Zimbabwe for just 84 runs before they completed their victory in the rain.

"We have played the same team in both games so far, but we know we will face tough opposition, probably South Africa first up, so we have to adapt and be ready," said Vettori.

He added: "After a tough start it was good to fight back in those middle stages particularly with Nathan McCullum and Scott Styris, those two three-wicket overs really helped us," he added.

"I think we knew it would be a difficult wicket to bat on later on with Zimbabwe having so many spin bowlers but the confidence in the middles stages, which we have shown in a number of Twenty20 games, was there and we were pleased with it again."
