Black Caps will stick to attacking approach

2015 World Cup

As they head into their World Cup quarter-final clash against West Indies, New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum has promised that his team will stick to the attacking approach that they have played for the past 12 to 18 months.

The Black Caps take on the Windies in Wellington on Saturday and come into the match on the back of eight straight ODI wins. Those victories saw them play with a fearless approach, with the skipper leading the way.

The scenario has now changed for the co-hosts though, it is a knock-out match and their are no comebacks for the losers but McCullum said his team will stick to what has worked for them.

McCullum said: "It's the greatest time of our lives.  The brand of cricket has really captivated New Zealand and is starting to make people around the world sit up and take notice as well.

"We love the fact we are playing in front of big crowds and have had the support we've had from our country.

"Hopefully it continues for another week or so yet. The guys have had some incredible experiences and it's the type of thing you don't want finishing any time soon.

"That style we're playing has served us well, things don't always go according to plan but you have to go to plan B. We have the players skills-wise and with the characters in the group who can quickly adjust."
