The recipient of 15 Test caps, Fulton will play his first on the sub-continent in October – and has been preparing for pitches likely to prove low, slow and conducive to spin.

"The good teams, the good players are able to adjust to any conditions," Fulton told the <i>New Zealand Herald</i>.

"That's the plan," he added. "In terms of Tests for New Zealand over the last few years, there's sometimes been a bit of a shortage, so it's good to see a pretty busy Test programme and it'd be nice to be part of that."
