McCullum concedes he's under pressure

6:44 am on 25 January 2012

The New Zealand opening batsman Brendon McCullum admits he's feeling the pressure after a string of low scores going into the one off cricket test against Zimbabwe starting tomorrow in Napier.

McCullum has a top score of only 34 in his last six innings in matches against Zimbabwe and Australia.

But he's not keen to change his approach dramatically, and he's not content to simply occupy the crease.

The playing eleven hasn't been finalised, but it seems BJ Watling will be given the nod for the wicket-keeping duties.
