A rejuvenated Tim Southee admits he has struggled recently with the white ball for the Black Caps and says he is "always looking at ways at trying to improve".
New Zealand defeated India last night by 80-runs in their first Twenty 20 match at Westpac Stadium in Wellington.
Southee took figures of 3-17 in his four overs with the ball.
"So I guess you are always looking at ways to get better and always looking at ways at trying to improve as a cricketer," Southee told 1 NEWS at Auckland Airport today.
"It's just always evolving your game and looking at different ways at getting better and looking back to when you were at your best and how you were operating then."
The 30-year-old quick said having the Aotearoa name embroidered on their uniforms was a special touch to mark Waitangi Day.
"I guess anytime you get a New Zealand shirt it is special and yesterday it being Waitangi Day and the Aotearoa on the shirt. They did it a number of years ago I think against Zimbabwe, it's a nice touch," Southee said.
"It is there to stay for the whole series, so yeah it is always nice to see something different on the shirt."
The Black Caps take on India tomorrow night at Eden Park in Auckland for their second T20 fixture.
