After a poor tour of the West Indies, the BlackCaps have named a 15-man squad for the tour of India which is sure to prove to be a tough test.
And with spinner Daniel Vettori missing from the squad, it’s that little bit tougher.
National Selection Manager, Kim Littlejohn said “The tour of India will be a great challenge and experience for this squad.
“Unfortunately Daniel Vettori won’t recover in time for the Test series but his injury has created and opportunity for Jeetan Patel to come back into the side. Jeetan has been in great from for Warwickshire and deserves his opportunity.
“James Franklin has been brought into the squad to bolster the batting.He brings a lot of experience and knowledge of playing in Indian conditions which will be invaluable.
“Dean Brownlie misses out on selection. We continue to see him as player of the future but at this stage we feel he needs to works on parts of his game. There’s no doubt he will work hard to regain selection.”
The first Test is at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on August 23, 2012.
