Wellington: New Zealand opener Martin Guptill is set to return for the Black Caps' one-day international series against Bangladesh.
Guptill is in the squad for the three-game ODI series, pending a fitness test on Sunday, the Black Caps announced on Saturday.
The 32-year-old batsman was ruled out of the Twenty20 series against India with an aggravated disc in his lower back but Guptill is in line to return in Napier on Wednesday.
Guptill will partner Henry Nicholls atop the order if passed fit, while Colin Munro will replace captain Kane Williamson in the third game as the New Zealand skipper takes a pre-planned rest.
