Fast bowler Andy McKay has been recalled to the New Zealand cricket squad, bolstering its attack for the three-match ODI series against South Africa.
McKay was named on Monday among a 14-man squad, winning his international recall along with allrounder James Franklin and top-order batsman Jesse Ryder, who was earlier added to the New Zealand squad for Wednesday's third Twenty20 match.
Ryder, McKay and Franklin replace Dean Browlie and Jacob Oram, who have been omitted because of injuries, and teenage allrounder Tom Latham.
The ODIs will be played at Wellington on Saturday, Napier on February 29 and Auckland on March 3.
The squad: Brendon McCullum (captain), Michael Bates, Doug Bracewell, Andrew Ellis, James Franklin, Martin Guptill, Nathan McCullum, Andrew McKay, Kyle Mills, Tarun Nethula, Rob Nicol, Jesse Ryder, Tim Southee, Kane Williamson. — AP
