McCullum praises fighting spirit of his side as Kiwis sneak home.
Brendon McCullum, the New Zealand captain, praised his sides battling qualities as they claimed victory in the opening ODI against England.
The captain, who himself scored an unbeaten 69, was delighted with the way his side battled back from 155-5 to successfully chase down 259.
His counterpart, Alastair Cook, expressed his disappointment at how England failed to capitalise on a promising start his side had made.
England set themselves a great platform at 184-2 but the rest of the side collapsed and ended up being bowled out inside their 50 overs.
