Scott Styris has been called in to the BLACKCAPS squad for tomorrow's [Saturday 14 March] One-Day International against India at Eden Park, Auckland, as standby for Ewen Thompson.
Thompson received a blow to his left thumb during training today [Friday]. Examination by a sports physician has indicated the thumb is not broken, but is badly bruised. As it is his bowling hand, standby cover has been sought. Thompson will be further assessed tomorrow morning before a decision is made on whether he plays.
Styris will join the squad in Auckland tomorrow morning.
