The New Zealand cricket captain Dan Vettori will miss the opening one dayer against Australia in Napier today, after suffering a neck injury.

Ross Taylor will captain the side in his absence.

A Black Caps team spokesman says Vettori is being rested as a precautionary measure, after feeling a twinge in his neck during the warm-up.
