James Frankling replaces injured Mason in Kiwi squad
Christchurch, Mar 2 (UNI) New Zealand has drafted in left-armer James Franklin to replace an injured Michael Mason for Saturday's final one dayer against West Indies.
Franklin's alround show in the State Championship match against State Auckland Aces impressed the selectors and he was picked to replace Mason, who has failed to recover sufficiently from his lower back strain which kept him out of the 91-run win over the West Indies in Napier, according to a New Zealand Cricket release here.
Squad: Nathan Astle, Shane Bond, Stephen Fleming (captain), Peter Fulton, James Franklin, Brendon McCullum, Hamish Marshall, Kyle Mills, Jeetan Patel, Scott Styris, Ross Taylor, Daniel Vettori, Lou Vincent.
