In the knockout stages, our batsmen have all had hits, so that's a bonus for us. The confidence is still high. This was a match where we wanted to try thing and analyse what went wrong and what went right," he said.<br /> <br /> Otago skipper <a href="/tags/Brendon-McCullum/post" target="_blank">Brendon McCullum</a> said it was a smart move to start with Nathan McCullum after winning the toss and electing to bowl.<br /> <br /> "We had a couple of bowlers to rest today so we had to be tactically smarter," says Brendon McCullum.<br /> <br /> "So we began with Nathan who bowled well. Very happy with how the boys have performed. We are a bit surprised by the conditions, they suit our style of play."<br /> <br /> Man of the Match for his two-wicket burst early in the innings, off spinner Nathan McCullum said: "It is nice to contribute today and get the team to a good start. It was a good challenge to bowl first up with just two fielders at the outfield. I enjoyed the challenge.<br /> <br /> "It is good that we could give the other guys a game ahead of the main tournament. We are playing good cricket. We need to keep doing well in all the three facets — bowling, batting and fielding to go far in the tournament," said the New Zealander, who dismissed two in-form batsmen <a href="/tags/Parthiv-Patel/post" target="_blank">Parthiv Patel</a> and Shikhar Dhawan.
