Kyle Jamieson won’t travel with the BLACKCAPS squad for the remainder of the Dulux ODI Series and will instead have a period of rest leading into the upcoming KFC T20 Series against Bangladesh.

The decision was made after Jamieson experienced stiffness in his hamstring following his arrival home from Bangladesh last week.

Wellington Firebird Ben Sears, who was brought in as cover for the BLACKCAPS bowling attack ahead of yesterday’s game, will now stay on with the squad for the remaining matches in Nelson and Napier.

BLACKCAPS coach Gary Stead said the decision to give Jamieson the rest period was made with the broader schedule in mind.

“There’s a lot of cricket ahead of us and we want to make sure Kyle’s in the best place possible without taking any unnecessary risks.

“As we flagged when naming the ODI Squad we see the series as a chance to provide opportunities to some new players, and Ben fits that category.”

Finn Allen won’t travel with the team to Nelson after being released to play for the Auckland Aces in Tuesday’s opening match of the Dream11 Super Smash. Allen will then join the BLACKCAPS squad in Nelson ahead of ODI 2.

The BLACKCAPS squad fly from Dunedin to Nelson via Christchurch today.
