NZ bowlers need to execute plan

6:36 am on 10 March 2009

The New Zealand cricket coach Andy Moles says his bowlers have to execute the plans during the game if they're to win the remaining two one day internationals against India and draw the series.

India have scored 273 in 38 overs in the first ODI in Napier, 188 in 28 overs before the abandoned second match in Wellington, and then 392 - the highest total in New Zealand - in the third ODI in Christchurch.

Moles says the bolwers have practised and prepared but not implemented it during the game.

Moles says they have plans for all the Indian batsmen, but any plan is just worth the paper it is written on, unless you bowl to it.

He says they go to hamilton for tomorrow's match to a place where they have won before, they have a winning knowledge of the ground and all they need to do is to get their act together.
