In the ODI squads for India and Pakistan, New Zealand pacer Doug Bracewell has been selected to replace the injured Matt Henry. After suffering an abdominal strain on the final day of the second Test in Karachi, Henry was unable to participate in the white-ball series against Pakistan and India. Two to four weeks of rest and recovery are necessary for the fast bowler, who is 31 years old.
With 68 international appearances, Bracewell participated in the ODI series against the Netherlands at home in April. In domestic cricket, the 32-year-old has been in good form both with the bat and the ball. On Wednesday, he will get to Pakistan.
Tim Southee has been replaced for the India tour by pace bowler Jacob Duffy.
After their three-match ODI series against Pakistan concludes on January 13, the team will depart for India.
On January 18, the first ODI of the Black Caps' white-ball tour of India will take place in Hyderabad, followed by games in Raipur and Indore.
Bracewell, according to New Zealand coach Gary Stead, was a like-for-like replacement for Henry in the ODI squad.
"Doug is a quality bowler with a lot of experience, and we feel that his skills best complement the bowling mix we already have in the squads for Pakistan and India," Stead said to New Zealand Cricket (NZC) on Monday.
"He has experience playing in the subcontinent, has played in all three formats at the international level, and has already demonstrated his versatility this season. Stead said of Henry, who sustained the injury on the last day of a tied Test in Karachi, "Matt has been one of the leaders of our ODI attack for a number of years, and I know he's disappointed to be missing out due to injury.
