Oram and Ryder recalled by Kiwis

Jacob Oram
Oram missed New Zealand's tour of Australia through injury

All-rounder Jacob Oram and batsman Jesse Ryder have both been recalled for New Zealand's Twenty20 internationals against India in February.

Oram returns to the Kiwis' 13-man squad as a batsman only after recovering from an Achilles tendon injury while Ryder has shaken off a shoulder complaint.

Pace bowler Ewen Thompson comes in for Kyle Mills, who has an Achilles injury.

The Twenty20 matches take place in Christchurch on 25 February and in Wellington on 27 February.

India will also play five one-day internationals and three Tests during their tour of New Zealand.

Six members of the India squad will be allowed to play in New Zealand's domestic cricket competition before the Test series begins on 18 March in Hamilton.


New Zealand Cricket chief executive Justin Vaughan says the deal has been struck because of the absence of an official warm-up match.

India added an extra Test and Twenty20 international to their tour last month.

New Zealand (for two Twenty20 internationals against India): Daniel Vettori (captain), Neil Broom, Ian Butler, Grant Elliott, Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum, Nathan McCullum, Iain O'Brien, Jacob Oram, Jesse Ryder, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Ewen Thompson.
