Cricket: Open with spin says Crowe

Former New Zealand cricket captain Martin Crowe is calling for the Black Caps to play three spinners in their World Cup quarterfinal against South Africa.

Skipper Daniel Vettori is poised to return from injury for Friday's match and join Nathan McCullum in the spin department.

Crowe says Wellington left-arm spinner Luke Woodcock should be brought in as well.

He says Woodcock is a must in the sub continent conditions and Vettori should open the bowling.

Crowe says the Black Caps must pick specialist bowlers rather than trying to stack their batting line-up.
