Vettori says they still want to win

The New Zealand cricket captain Daniel Vettori says while he's satisfied with their batting effort on the last day of the drawn second Test against India in Hyderabad, he's neither satisfied or content with the nil-all scoreline in the three-Test series.

Opening batsman Brendon McCullum celebrated a career best 225 after nine hours at the crease as New Zealand declared at tea on the final day on 448 for eight, and India went through the motions in scoring 68 without loss when the game was called off an hour before the scheduled close.

Before the series, the Black Caps coach Mark Greatbatch had said he would be happy with a drawn series - however Vettori says that was never the plan.

He says they still want the series, they've put themselves into a position to do that and to win in India would be such an amazing achievement for this side.

The series decider starts in Nagpur on Saturday.
