The New Zealand cricket team's vice captain Brendon McCullum has been left out of the international one day and Twenty20 squads for the tour of the West Indies.
The national selection manager Kim Littlejohn says they've asked McCullum to take a break during the two Twenty20 games and five one dayers as the Black Caps have a heavy international programme and they need to manage player workloads.
Also missing from the Twenty20 squad is Wellington all-rounder James Franklin.
Littlejohn says with Franklin playing for Essex in the English County Twenty20 competition, the selection panel believes that'll provide better preparation for him ahead of the upcoming Twenty20 world cup, rather than two games against the Windies in Florida.
Otago's South African fast bowler Neil Wagner has been included in the test squad after recently getting clearance from cricket's world governing body the ICC to play for New Zealand.
The wicketkeeper-batsman BJ Watling has overcome his hip injury and been included in all three squad as has his Northern Districts teamate Daniel Flynn.
Colin de Grandhomme, Michael Bates and Andy McKay who played for the Black Caps in their domestic matches this summer have missed out altogether.
