Opening batsman Peter Ingram will replace Jesse Ryder in New Zealand’s squad for next month’s cricket tri-series against India and Sri Lanka.
Ryder withdrew last Wednesday from the squad for the Sri Lanka tournament due to an elbow injury. New Zealand Cricket on Thursday called up Ingram when the selectors’ first choice, Aaron Redmond, was unavailable.
Ingram, 31, made his debut for New Zealand last summer, playing tests against Australia and Bangladesh and limited-overs matches.
New Zealand: Ross Taylor (captain), Grant Elliott, Martin Guptill, Gareth Hopkins, Nathan McCullum, Andy McKay, Kyle Mills, Jacob Oram, Jeetan Patel, Jesse Ryder, Tim Southee, Scott Styris, Daryl Tuffey, B.J. Watling, Kane Williamson
