New Zealand Cricket (NZC) today announced that Neil Wagner will replace Adam Milne in the ODI squad for the upcoming series in South Africa.
BLACKCAPS Physiotherapist Paul Close said: “Adam sustained a recurrence of his lower leg injury that’s been problematic for him over the last few months.
“He requires further assessment to determine the severity of the injury but because he is unable bowl without pain the decision has been made to replace him for the ODI series.”
BLACKCAPS Head Coach, Mike Hesson, said: "While it is obviously disappointing for Adam this gives Neil a wonderful opportunity to join the squad for the ODI series.
"He's the ideal replacement for Adam and we are confident he will perform well in the one-dayers should he get the opportunity on this tour.”
