Cricbuzz prediction: New Zealand sailor Matt Henry retired from the ODI series in Pakistan, India.

Henry picked up an injury on the final day of the second friendly against Pakistan here and coach Gary Stead confirmed his progress.

New Zealand sailor Matt Henry has been ruled out of Saturday’s scheduled whiteball series against Pakistan and India after suffering stomach pains.

Henry was injured on the final day of the second friendly against Pakistan here, and his coach Gary Stead confirmed the progress.

He came bowling with an injury in the final session of the fifth day as New Zealand reduced Pakistan to nine and a two-game winning streak ended in a draw.

“It’s been a really bold effort, but he’s backing out of the ODI side,” Stead said Saturday. New Zealand Cricket have yet to announce a replacement as Henry returns home with the rest of the Test team.

Earlier, Blair Tickner replaced his fellow fast bowler Adam Milne in the Whiteball roster due to concerns over his preparation for 50 overs of cricket.

NZC has named a split ODI team for the away series with Pakistan starting on 10th January and India scheduled to start on 18th January, allowing them to manage the workload of their players.

Regular skipper Kane Williamson and head coach Stead will be in charge of the three-game ODI series in Pakistan.

In the absence of Williamson and Stead, Tom Latham will lead the Kiwis and batting coach Luke Ronchi will head coach the three-game ODI series against India. The 3-game ODI series in India begins in Hyderabad, followed by the same T20Is series. The first match of the T20I series will be held at Lunch on January 27th.
