Wellington Firebird’s speedy Ben Sears was capable of make his ODI debut for the Black Caps after being referred to as up for his or her West Indian tour instead of the injured Matt Henry.

The 24-year-old has performed six T20 internationals for New Zealand since making his debut towards Bangladesh in Mirpur final September, and will now play within the 50-over format following Henry’s rib harm.

The Black Caps will play the primary of three ODIs towards the West Indies on Wednesday at Kensington Oval in Barbados (NZT), having already accomplished their three-match T20 collection after an unassailable 2-0 lead.

* Ross Taylor the second he grew to become a millionaire was taking part in with Shane Warne and placing David Warner in a grip
* Trent Boult and Tim Southee mixture numbers are among the many finest in testing historical past

Black Caps coach Gary Stead mentioned Henry first skilled ache in his left hand throughout coaching final week and had been not noted as a precaution with the T20 World Cup and a three-game ODI collection in Australia forward.

“It is a disgrace Matt has to go residence at this level on the tour,” Stead mentioned. “Whereas the harm isn’t too critical, we felt there was a big threat that it could worsen from taking part in.


Glenn Phillips crushed 76 earlier than the spinners received the T20 collection for the Black Caps within the West Indies.

“With the upcoming ODI collection beginning on Wednesday and consisting of three video games over 5 days, we noticed it as smart to usher in a completely match substitute.”

Stead mentioned Sears was an “thrilling younger prospect” who would add some further pace to the New Zealand assault after impressing on their current tour of Europe towards Eire, Scotland and the Netherlands.

Henry has returned to New Zealand to start his rehabilitation, with Sears arriving in Jamaica on Monday (NZT) earlier than flying to Barbados on Monday with the remainder of the squad.

The Black Caps will play a three-game Chappell-Hadlee Trophy ODI collection in Australia on September 2.

Sears thrived on the home degree for the Firebirds, taking 3-22 towards the Netherlands earlier this month within the first T20 between the perimeters in The Hague.
