Tim Southee and Hamish Rutherford called into New Zealand squad to face England on Wednesday.
Injuries to bowler Mitchell McClenaghan and batsman Martin Guptill, have forced New Zealand to reshape their side ahead of the second ODI against England.
McClenaghan got four English wickets in Hamilton on Sunday, but suffered a side strain that will keep him out of the second match of the series. His replacement Tim Southee, is returning to the squad after ligament damage to his thumb has kept him out of the side.
The swing bowler hasn’t played for the Kiwis since November last year, but the 24-year-old already has 87 ODI wickets under his belt, so should not suffer from nerves against England.
Hamish Rutherford on the other hand, only made his international début on 9 February, in a Twenty20 game at the start of the Three Lions’ visit. It will be his first ODI for New Zealand if he plays in Wednesday’s match.
The man he is replacing, opener Martin Guptill, finished 27 not-out in the first ODI on Sunday and partnered his captain Brendon McCullum, as the Kiwis reached their target of 259.
