Pakistan vs New Zealand: Doug Bracewell replaces Matt Henry for ODI series

Doug Bracewell has been called up to replace the injured Matt Henry in the New Zealand squad for the upcoming series against Pakistan and India.

The Kiwi all-rounder arrives in Karachi on Wednesday local time.
Earlier, Henry was ruled out due to a strained abdomen he suffered on the last day of the second test in Karachi.

New Zealand head coach Gary Stead confirmed the development, explaining that Bracewell was chosen because he was a like-for-like replacement.

“Doug is a high quality bowler with a lot of experience, and we feel his skills best suit the bowling mix we already have in the squads for Pakistan and India,” said Stead.

“He has experience in all three formulas at international level, has experience on the subcontinent and has already shown his skills this season,” he added.

New Zealand squad: Kane Williamson (c), Tom Latham, 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, Tim Southee , Blair Tickner
