New Zealand call up Southee

Wellington - New Zealand called opening bat Hamish Rutherford and paceman Tim Southee into the one-day squad on Monday as replacements for injured duo Martin Guptill and Mitchell McClenaghan.

The pair were hurt during the Black Caps' nail-biting win in the first one-day international against England on Sunday, Guptill straining a hamstring and McClenaghan a muscle in his side.

Guptill went off injured during the three-wicket win in Hamilton but came back to score the winning runs in dramatic fashion, belting four fours and a six while playing on one leg to see his team home and finish on 27 not out.

Physiotherapist Paul Close said Guptill would definitely miss the second ODI in Napier on Wednesday and would be assessed before the final fixture in the series in Auckland on Saturday.

His replacement, Rutherford, made his debut for New Zealand in the recently completed Twenty20 series against England, averaging 23 with a high score of 40.

Close said McClenaghan will miss the rest of the one-day series.

Southee returned to first-class cricket last week after two months on the sidelines following surgery on an injured thumb.
