8:00 am on 30 September 2010

The New Zealand cricket captain, Daniel Vettori, says the one-day series against Bangladesh will give the Black Caps the opportunity to acclimatise to conditions for next year's World Cup.

Vettori says one of best reasons the side's touring the region, is to allow the players who haven't played in Asia before, to experience the conditions.

He says the side's lucky to be able to play in all three of the host nations, including Inida and Sri Lanka, before the World Cup.

The five-day ODI series against bangladesh starts on October the 5th.
