McCullum says they need to make changes for second one dayer

The New Zealand cricket captain Brendon McCullum says there'll be changes to the side for the second one dayer in Napier but it's not because they've lost their last three games to South Africa.

South Africa's one nil up in the best of three series after winning the first one dayer at the weekend by six wickets, having also won the Twenty/20 series 2-1.

McCullum says they need to consider what lies ahead of them, including the three-match test series, and give as many players as possible the chance to become familiar with the clinical South Africans before then.

The second one-dayer is in Napier on Wednesday.
