New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum has declared the final playing XI Kiwi team for upcoming world cup 2015 match against Afghanistan on Sunday at Napier. The announced team is same as it was against Australia. Blackcaps have won all the played four matches in cricket world cup so far.
Brendon McCullum said, “We’ve settled on this as our No.1 at this point, but I’m confident – if injuries do come about – we’ve got the experience and personnel on the sideline that can step up and perform a role. The nature of the games we’ve had so far haven’t been overly taxing in terms of the physical demands on our bowlers.”
Blackcaps defeated Australia in an exciting game played at Auckland. Their batting was also collapsed just like Aussies had in the match. But still team is confident and well established as prospects to other sides in the tournament. McCullum added, “In an ideal world, he would have bowled a fair few more than that – then we would have been looking to call on someone from the bench. The way the games have unfolded has allowed us the luxury of being able to roll out the same team.”
