The Men's Black Sticks first series of the year is unearthing some names for the future.

20-year-old striker Mac Wilcox is one of four debutants in the current squad and scored a goal in his debut against Pakistan on the weekend.

Senior Black Sticks striker Stephen Jenness says Wilcox is a hard worker who doesn't stop running.

Jenness says it's an inexperienced striking group currently so he's taken on a leadership role where he's worked towards playing off their strengths.

The Black Sticks will meet Pakistan in tonight's fourth test in Carterton.

Centre pass is at 6:30pm.
