Big-hitting Guptill back in New Zealand ODIs

Christchurch: Martin Guptill, one of only a handful of players to have scored a double century in one-day cricket, will return to the New Zealand squad for next month's one-day series against Sri Lanka.

All-rounders Doug Bracewell and Jimmy Neesham also return in the 13-man squad named Thursday.

Guptill, whose unbeaten 237 against the West Indies in the 2015 World Cup is the second highest ODI score of all time, has been sidelined by injury in recent months.

With the selectors endeavouring to give opportunities to a wider group of players, incumbent one-day wicketkeeper Tom Latham will miss the Sri Lanka series, while Colin de Grandhomme has been rested.

Latham's absence paves the way for 24-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert to make his ODI debut.

New Zealand ODI squad:
Kane Williamson (capt), Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, James Neesham, Ross Taylor, Matt Henry, Henry Nicholls, Tim Seifert (wk), Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell
