NZ names two new faces for Oz series

January 22, 2009 10:25 IST

New Zealand have named two new faces in their 14-man squad to play Australia in the Chappell-Hadlee one-day series starting next month.

Uncapped all-rounder Brendon Diamanti and 18-year-old bowler Trent Boult were included after impressive domestic performances. Batsman Peter Fulton and seam bowler Iain O'Brien were recalled.

"We're treating this somewhat like a home series -- we may look to bring players in and out of the squad as required," head of selectors Glenn Turner said in a statement.

The tour includes five one-day matches and a Twenty20 game against Australia.

Squad: Daniel Vettori (Captain), Trent Boult, Neil Broom, Brendon Diamanti, Grant Elliott, Peter Fulton, Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum, Kyle Mills, Iain O'Brien, Jeetan Patel, Jesse Ryder, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor.
