Mark Gillespie and Martin Guptill return to the Black Caps Test squad for the tour of England, in an otherwise unchanged side to the one which recently drew 0-0 in the home Test series.
Guptill has recovered from surgery on a ligament injury to his left thumb and while he looks unlikely to budge Hamish Rutherford and Peter Fulton from the top of the order, he could potentially replace Dean Brownlie.
Unlike Rutherford and Fulton, who both had breakthrough series against England, Brownlie failed to fire at number five, only averaging 27.35 in four innings.
"Martin has proven himself to be a world-class performer before, and we're thrilled to have back in the side," Black Caps coach Mike Hesson said in a statement.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
right! Vettori fix. Guptil better. west indies not beating the Kiwi again in a hurry. Agreed and they seem to be playing more competitively under McCullum. do not forget Rutherford and Taylor. The seam bowling looks good with Boult, Wagner, Bracewell and Southee. Williamson also seems to becoming more consistent.
and it will be even worse when Jamaica leaves. we not beating anyone at all..period ::LOL:: ::LOL:: ::LOL:: ::LOL:: ::LOL:: Sooner they go the better for all concerned....Lol.
