Auckland, Mar 13 (PTI) The Indian team is in a dilemma on whether to field a full-strength team in their bid for a 4-0 sweep or give the reserve players a chance in the fifth and final cricket one-dayer against New Zealand here tomorrow.
"We would be tempted to rest some players, but we also want to make sure we keep the momentum going. It is important on a tour to set yourself up to win games of cricket on a consistent level, and momentum is very important on a tour".
"So we haven't made a decision. We have spoken about a little bit," said Kirsten, addressing the media in the absence of skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who had set out for deep-sea fishing.
Asked whether Sachin Tendulkar, whose abdomen injury kept him out of the fourth one-dayer in Hamilton, could return to action in tomorrow's match, Kirsten said, "We are not sure yet. We will have to wait and see." PTI
