Change in attitude reaps rewards in India says Greatbatch

The embarrassment of the four nil one day series loss to Bangladesh has played a part in the New Zealand cricketers change of fortunes in India says coach Mark Greatbatch.

Having drawn the first two tests, the two sides meet in the third and final test starting Nagpur on Saturday.

The double century by opener Brendon McCullum helped the Black Caps to a second innings total of 448 for 8 declared with India 68 without loss when the game was abandoned as a draw.

Greatbatch says the performances in India only highlight how the side lacked focus in Bangladesh.
