Daryl Mitchell will miss the final match of the KFC T20I Series against Pakistan at Hagley Oval as part of ongoing workload management.
With Mitchell withdrawn from consideration for selection, Wellington Firebird Rachin Ravindra will join the squad in Christchurch for Sunday’s match.
BLACKCAPS coach Gary Stead said the decision to have Mitchell sit this match out was based on the team’s position in the current series and the upcoming schedule.
“Daryl is an important player for us across all three formats and ensuring he’s in the best place to perform in international cricket is vital.”
“Rachin is coming off a period of rest himself and will bring a valuable skill set to the group in this final match as he continues his return to cricket,” said Stead.
A decision on Devon Conway’s availability for the final match of the series will be made tomorrow morning.
