New Zealand Cricket (NZC) today announced that all-rounder Grant Elliott will replace Corey Anderson in the ODI squad for the upcoming series in South Africa.
Anderson was struck on his hand while bowling and has sustained a fracture to his left thumb. He will be a cast for the next two weeks and his return to cricket will be
determined in due course.
BLACKCAPS Head Coach, Mike Hesson, said: “With the injury to Corey Anderson we decided to replace him with another batting all-rounder in Grant Elliott.
"Grant comes into the squad with invaluable knowledge and experience of South African conditions.”
