BLACKCAPS all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme has been ruled out of the remainder of the Test series against England after a scan revealed a tear to his right plantar fascia (heel).

Wellington Firebirds all-rounder Michael Bracewell, who was with the squad for the first Test as cover for Henry Nicholls, has been added for the remainder of the series as de Grandhomme’s replacement.

Coach Gary Stead said de Grandhomme would require 10 to 12 weeks to recover.

“It’s a real shame for Colin to suffer this injury so early in the series,” Stead said.

“He’s a massive part of our Test side and we’ll certainly miss him.

“It’s great to be able to call on someone like Michael who’s been with the squad for the past month and is match ready.”

The BLACKCAPS relocate to Nottingham on Tuesday ahead of the second Test at Trent Bridge starting on Friday.
