Doug Bracewell replaces injured Matt Henry for Pakistan ODI series

Tim Southee has also been replaced by Jacob Duffy for the upcoming ODI series against India

Experienced pacer Doug Bracewell has been named Matt Henry's replacement for New Zealand's three-match ODI series against Pakistan starting on Monday (January 9).

Henry was on Saturday ruled out of the rest of the Pakistan series and the upcoming series against India due to abdominal strain. According to New Zealand Cricket (NZC), the pacer will require two to four weeks of rest and rehabilitation.

Bracewell, who made his international debut in 2011, has not played international cricket since the home ODI series against Netherlands in April, 2022. The right-arm pacer has picked up 20 wickets from four Plunkett Shield matches, which has prompted his selection.

Black Caps head coach Gary Stead confirmed that the 32-year old will arrive in Karachi on Wednesday.

"Doug is a quality bowler with a lot of experience and we feel his skills best compliment the bowling mix we already have in the squads for Pakistan and India. He has experience across all three formats at international level, has experience in the subcontinent, and has already shown his range of skills this season," Stead said in an official release.

NZC also confirmed that Jacob Duffy will replace Tim Southee in the ODI Squad for the India series but was unavailable to travel as a replacement for Henry, as he is recovering from COVID.

The likes of Kyle Jamieson, Adam Milne and Ben Sears were unavailable for selection as they are yet to fully recover from their injuries.

After the ODI series against Pakistan ends on January 14, New Zealand will travel to India for three ODIs and three T20Is from January 18 to February 1.

New Zealand squad for Pakistan ODIs: Kane Williamson (captain), Tom Latham, Finn Allen, Doug Bracewell, Michael Bracewell, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Henry Shipley, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Blair Tickner.

New Zealand squad for India ODIs: Tom Latham (captain), Kane Williamson, Finn Allen, Doug Bracewell, Michael Bracewell, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Jacob Duffy, Lockie Ferguson, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Henry Shipley, Ish Sodhi, Blair Tickner.
