PAK v NZ | Matt Henry will miss Pakistan and India with a stomach ache
Matt Henry has become the third New Zealand fast bowler to miss this month’s ODI series in Pakistan and India due to injury. Henry joined Adam Milne and Kyle Jamieson on the final day of the second Test shoot in Karachi after suffering a stomach ache.
New Zealand fast bowler Matthew Henry He was recently ruled out of the upcoming ODIs in Pakistan and India due to a stomach ache. The 31-year-old returns home with the rest of the Test squad that drew 0-0 in the two-match series in Pakistan. New Zealand has yet to name Henry’s replacement.
“It’s been tough to play ten of the last 12 days (in Karachi) and it’s been a full day with no break in the weather,” New Zealand coach Gary Stead said, ESPNCricinfo reported. “So when you’re on the field for eight sessions in every Test match, I think there’s a natural wear and tear on the players.”
Henry is expected to be sidelined for two to four weeks, indicating he will return for the Black Caps’ next Test against England at Mt Maunganui from February 16. The three-match ODI series against Pakistan begins next Monday, with India’s three-match series on Wednesday a week later.
Jacob Duffy is the favorite to replace Henry, according to stuff.co.nz. Duffy has booked a place in the Indian contingent and is expected to travel to Pakistan.
Still recovering from a back injury sustained in England last season, Kyle Jamieson should be close to making a domestic return with Auckland Aces in the Twenty20 Super Smash.
“He should start playing again for Auckland in about a week,” Stead confirmed Jamieson’s development, as quoted by stuff.co.nz.
“We’ll make a decision closer to the time around the England Test series if it’s a step too far or if it’s a good time for him to play again. He hasn’t played cricket for a long time and I think it would be foolish to push too fast and push him back again.
