New Zealand announces squad for Bangladesh ODIs
New Zealand announces the 14-member squad for the upcoming ODI series against Bangladesh scheduled to be started from February 13 in Napier.
New Zealand has dropped Colin Munro for the first two ODIs while skipper Kane Williamson has been rested from third ODI. Tom Latham will captain in third ODI.
Martin Guptil, who's also missed the T20I series against India, has been included in the 14-man squad. He is expected to be partnered by Henry Nicholls at the top. Mitchell Santner and Todd Astle, also returned from knee injuries.
"We're delighted to have Martin back for this series; he's a world-class player and an integral part of our one-day side," selector Gavin Larsen said.
"We've been really pleased with Mitchell's return after serious knee surgery last year and we'll continue to monitor him through the rest of the season. Todd's another who is returning from a knee injury and after getting limited opportunities against India, we're keen to see more of him in this series," he added.
