Astle, Ferguson return to New Zealand's ODI squad

039;Unique' Neil Wagner wreaks havoc says New Zealand coach Mike Hesson

There were no other major surprises.

New Zealand will now contest three ODIs against the Windies with the first game scheduled for Whangarei on 20 December.

Tom Latham will captain the New Zealand side in the absence of Williamson.

In Guptill's absence, Central Districts batsman George Worker will open the batting for the hosts.

"It's a long summer, so for those guys playing in all three formats it's important we keep them fresh and build depth leading into a world cup year", chief selector Gavin Larsen stressed on the need for proper rest to the players. Pakistan will play five ODIs and three T20Is while England will play two Test matches in addition to five ODIs.

Left-arm seamers Neil Wagner and Trent Boult took 24 of the Windies' wickets over the two games with Wagner bagging career-best figures of 7-39 in the first Test.

An emotional Ross Taylor paid tribute to his mentor the late Martin Crowe following a superb century which put New Zealand in sight of a series sweep against the West Indies in Hamilton yesterday. He was forced to withdraw from that tour, however, and has since been in good bowling in the Ford trophy, taking seven wickets in three matches for Canterbury.

The 26-year-old last played for New Zealand in February but has been pushing for a selection with promising performances for Auckland in the domestic circuit. "He was unlucky to get injured before the Blackcaps tour in India, but he's continued to bowl well on return and thoroughly deserves this opportunity".
