Vettori says he doesn't want a return to greentops for the test series

It's an upbeat New Zealand cricket side that will now switch their focus to the three test series against India starting in Hamilton on Wednesday.

Having won the final one dayer in Auckland at the weekend skipper Dan Vettori says its a timely boost for several of the bowlers who've struggled during the one dayers which India won 3-1.

While the Black Caps bowlers struggled to contain the likes of Virendar Sehwag during the one dayers Vettori says that doesn't mean he wants to see a return to slow seaming greentops during the test series.

He says he would like something with a bit more pace in it, but he'd be happy as long as it is fair.
