McCullum believes Dhaka conditions will help them

The New Zealand wicketkeeper Brendan McCullum thinks their greater experience of conditions in Dhaka could give them the edge over South Africa in their World Cup quarter-final clash.

While their record there isn't good, they lost to Bangladesh four times in October last year, they at least know the conditions well.

McCullum says to play South Africa in those conditions isn't a bad draw at all. They obviously prefer a little more pace and bounce in their wickets.

He says Dhaka won't quite give them that and he's sure they'll be a little disappointed.

South Africa have also recently played at the ground, however, knocking co-hosts Bangladesh out of the World Cup with a 206 run victory.
