The pacer, Loki Ferguson had earlier pulled out of the series after the scan suggested bone stress injury on his lumbar spine. His further availability will be subjected to the next assessment and scan results.

Ferguson ruled out:

Lokie’s injury concern is a setback for the New Zealand side considering what he brings to the side with his bowling. We are waiting for more information on his rehab program,” Selector Gavin Larsen said.

Speedster Hamish Bennett was also ruled out of the series after he sustained an abdominal tear in round three of the Ford Trophy.

Jacob Duffy has earned his maiden call-up for the T20I squad after an impressive cricket in the domestic circuit.
