There are couple of key injury concerns for the Black Caps ahead of tomorrow's must win fifth one day international against Pakistan in Hamilton.
Skipper Daniel Vettori is struggling with a hamstring strain while Jesse Ryder is still nursing a finger injury.
Vettori's hopeful Ryder will play at Seddon Park.
He says it didn't look very good last time he saw but the physio believes it'll get better.
In his own case, Vettori says it's important he plays the match if he's fit enough.
Meanwhile Vettori blasted the top order's performance as "unacceptable" after his team fell to a two-wicket defeat to Pakistan last night.
"I think we walked off the park after batting thinking 300 was a par score, so we had to scrap pretty hard with the ball to give ourselves a chance, and I think we did," Vettori said last night.
"But being five for 80 at McLean Park, I don't think that's acceptable. It's a great batting deck and it's just not acceptable.
"I was pleased with the way (James) Franklin and the two McCullums (Brendon and Nathan) scrapped to give us a score, they all played exceptionally well to give us credibility, but five for 80 is just not good enough."
