Mason recalled for Windies

Michael Mason is the only surprise in the New Zealand One-Day squad announced this afternoon for the Twenty20 international and the first two games of the West Indies series.

Hamish Marshall and Jamie How have been retained in favor of Ross Taylor who can feel a little hard done by after a superb domestic season including three 100’s in the limited over version of the game and an average of over 60.

Chris Cairns has been added to the squad for the Twenty20 match only, which will be his last match for the BLACKCAPS before he retires from international cricket.

Jacob Oram and Kyle Mills were not considered for selection. Oram because of injury and Mills due to a lack of match fitness.
