New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham will miss Friday night s T20I against Sri Lanka at Eden Park with a grade-one hamstring strain suffered in today s third ODI in Nelson.

Physio Vijay Vallabh said Neesham would be unable to recover in time for the one-off match and would instead return home to rest.

He s iced and compressed the injury and will be reassessed in a couple of days.

Central Stags all-rounder Doug Bracewell, who has been with the ODI squad, will travel to Auckland with the T20 squad tomorrow morning.

Squad:

Tim Southee (c), Doug Bracewell, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Scott Kuggeleijn, Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Seth Rance, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert (wk), Ish Sodhi, Ross Taylo
