The BLACKCAPS have confirmed a 15-man squad to face England in the upcoming three-Test series, with the addition of Michael Bracewell as 16th man for the first Test starting at Lord’s in London on Thursday.
Bracewell is covering for Henry Nicholls who is in doubt for the first Test as he continues his recovery from his right calf injury.
Jacob Duffy, Blair Tickner, Rachin Ravindra and Hamish Rutherford have been released from the initial 20 player squad.
Trent Boult is due to arrive in London on Monday and is considered unlikely to be available for the first Test.
