Bracewell to miss Pakistan one dayers

9:44 am on 4 January 2018

The Black Caps allround Doug Bracewell will miss the first two one dayers against Pakistan after suffering a hamstring injury in last night's T20 win over the West Indies in Tauranga.

Central Districts teammate George Worker will replace Bracewell in the squad which has been named for the first two matches of the five-game series.

All-rounder Colin de Grandhomme who missed the limited overs series against the West Indies following the sudden death of his father last month will resume playing domestic cricket for Auckalnd this weekend and Black Caps coach Mike Hesson is hopeful he'll be available for side later in the Pakistan series.

The Black Caps first match against Pakistan is in Wellington on Saturday.,
