Black Caps coach Mike Hesson is ramping up pre-match tactics by recalling 111 test match veteran Daniel Vettori back into the side.
Down 1-0 in the series, the Black Caps need to be aggressive.
Vettori was in the United Emirates with the New Zealand A side and trained with the Black Caps overnight.
The veteran’s international career looked to be finished after his last test against the West Indies in 2012.
“We will look at our options within the squad and we’ll select a side that gives us the best chance of winning a test match,” Hesson said.
