Hussain Warns NZ Players

PALMERSTON NORTH -- All the pressure is on New Zealand in the
forthcoming cricket test series, according to England
vice-captain Nasser Hussain.

After hitting an entertaining 139 against the New Zealand
Selection XI yesterday, Hussain said his team was "quietly
confident" of doing well here.

"Let New Zealand think they're the favourites," he said. "We've
just lost to Zimbabwe -- all the pressure is on them (New
Zealand). Good luck to them. In the camp, we're quietly confident
when we play on wickets like this."
