  • Print





James Neesham has been ruled out of the one-off T20I against Sri Lanka due to a hamstring strain, it was confirmed on Tuesday (January 8). The all-rounder picked up the injury in the final ODI of the three-match series as New Zealand sealed it 3-0. Doug Bracewell will replace Neeshan with Tim Southee leading the side.
Neesham, who returned to the ODI squad after a long lay-off, scored 123 runs in the three games at a strike rate of 219.64 and picked up six wickets at an average of 20. "He's iced and compressed the injury and will be reassessed in a couple of days," New Zealand's physio Vijay Vallabh said.
