With the whitewash of the ODI series against the West Indies, the New Zealand White Ferns turn their focus on the Twenty20 series starting tomorrow afternoon.

The White Ferns thumped the West Indies 3-0 in their One Day International series.

Although the Kiwi's are pleased with the momentum they have going into the Twenty20, they are very aware of the dangerous West Indian side when it comes to the shorter format of the game.

White Ferns seam bowler Hannah Rowe commented on the danger the visitors pose.

"Obviously coming off a three-nil win is good for momentum but at the same time we don't want to get too complacent.The West Indies are a very strong T20 side, they won the Twenty20 World Cup last year."  

Rowe adds that the New Zealand side will look to implement bowling plans to attack the key West Indian big hitters.

"To be honest any of their players can go big, we aren't targeting any one player but more so just making sure we execute our plans to their batters."

The first Twenty20 series against the tourists tomorrow at Bay Oval, Tauranga.
