Vettori believes fourth or fifth place beckons for Black Caps

New Zealand cricket captain Dan Vettori believes it's realistic for his side to move into fourth or fifth place on the world test rankings over the next couple of years.

Thanks to the rain the Black Caps staved off defeat in the third and final test against India in Wellington yesterday, but India won the series one-nil.... their first series win here in over 40 years.

Vettori admits the Black Caps, who're ranked ahead of only Bangladesh, continue to be plagued by inconsistency.
