Fast bowler Tim Bresnan has been ruled out of England’s upcoming test series in New Zealand because of a right elbow injury, with the uncapped Chris Woakes coming in as a replacement.

It is the only change to the 15-man test squad from the recent series in India, where England won 2-1.

Woakes is also one of three players, along with Joe Root and James Harris, brought into a revised one-day international squad. Wicketkeeper-batsman Craig Kieswetter has been rested.

England plays three Twenty20 matches and three ODIs against New Zealand before the first of three tests starts on March 6 in Dunedin.

England won the last test series in New Zealand 2-1, in 2008.
