Taylor non commital about lineup for second cricket test

7:00 am on 12 March 2012

Blackcaps skipper Ross Taylor is non commital about what lineup he'll take into the second cricket test starting in Hamilton on Thursday.

Taylor's team may have come away with a hint more confidence than when they first set foot on University Oval in Dunedin.

Yesterday's final day was rained out when the Blackcaps were chasing 401 to win and New Zealand were 137 for two.

The manner in which Taylor and Brendon McCullum curbed their attacking instincts with the bat to resurrect their second innings showed the hosts could be competitive in the three-match series.

Ross Taylor says the state of the Hamilton wicket could influence the New Zealand lineup.
