On Monday, Brendon McCullum New Zealand captain said his message to the side ahead of their International Cricket Council World Cup semis clash against South Africa will be to put their best foot forward and enjoy the event.

Speaking at the pre-match media conference ahead of their Tuesday’s contest, he thinks McCullum told that it will be no different to every other match. They talk a lot about this being the greatest time of their lives and the trip that have been on till now has been one that they will all remember.

He added that the match is meant to go out there, express yourself, enjoy the event, put their best foot forward, and they will watch where the cards fall after that.

On losing their third pace bowler Adam Milne due to a left heel injury, the Black Caps captain said it was disheartening particularly given the fact that he has put on such an impressive performance with the ball for New Zealand.

He added that it is obviously disheartening. Adam has been marvelous for them in that third pacer role throughout the World Cup. Injuries happen, though, and in the end they have got some good cover amongst the team.

The 33 years old Black Caps skipper said his team was looking forward to the battle despite some of them being a little apprehensive about the outcome of the match.

“The boys are quiet excited. Some players get nervous. He thinks any match that one play some guys in his team get more nervous than others. But he thinks overall the general feeling is one that they just cannot wait to get out there and display their skills, test their skills against a very good South African team and obviously in a crunch match.

McCullum said he hoped the team which would handle pressure better to appear victorious.
