Otago's James Neesham has been called into the New Zealand
squad for the opening Twenty/20 match against England.
Otago all-rounder James Neesham has been called into the
Black Caps squad for tomorrow night's opening match in the ANZ
Twenty20 series at Auckland's Eden Park.
The 22-year-old, who was part of the New Zealand side that
claimed an historic one-day series victory in South Africa
last month, has been called in due to injuries to Ian Butler
and Grant Elliott.
Butler injured an ankle in the first New Zealand XI warm-up
match against England and Elliott has a quad strain.
Black Caps physiotherapist Paul Close said he was confident
Butler and Elliott would be available for the second T20
match in Hamilton on Tuesday.
