All-rounder Corey Anderson has been recalled to the New Zealand cricket team for its one-day matches against India next month.
Anderson hasn’t played for New Zealand since February because of a back injury, but demonstrated his fitness in three matches for a New Zealand XI against an Emerging XI at Christchurch last week.
Batsman Anton Devcich, allrounder Jimmy Neesham and wicketkeeper B.J. Watling have also been recalled to the 15-man squad for the five-match series that begins at Dharamsala on October 16.
Chief selector Gavin Larsen said Anderson’s “superb professionalism throughout his rehab process has led to this point and it’s a credit to him and the hard work he’s put in.”
SQUAD: Kane Williamson (c), Corey Anderson, Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Anton Devcich, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, James Neesham, Luke Ronchi, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, BJ Watling
