New Zealand have included four new faces in their squad for Sunday's Twenty20 clash with Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Off-spinning allrounder Nathan McCullum, brother of Brendon, along with Ian Butler and James Franklin, batsman Peter McGlashan will join the Black Caps for the first time on their Australian limited-overs tour.

The quartet, all boasting international experience, replace Trent Boult, Craig Cumming, Brendon Diamanti, Peter Fulton, Gareth Hopkins and Jeetan Patel who return to NZ after tomorrow's Chappell-Hadlee decider at the Gabba in Brisbane.
