Same lineup for White Ferns

5:49 am on 17 March 2009

The New Zealand women's cricket coach Gary Stead has named the same line up that played in the last two matches, for today's ICC World Cup match against India in Sydney.

Stead believes his line -up is the best one suited to the North Sydney Oval, which will have more bounce and greater carry than The Bankstown Oval and The Bradman Oval at Bowral had, although today they are on a different strip from the one that they beat Australia on the opening weekend.

He says he is not placing any greater emphasis on this fixture than any other they have played, but he admits there will be nerves , because the winner almost certainly books themselves a spot in the final.
