This player has been ruled out of Pak vs NZ ODI series

New Zealand fast bowler Matt Henry has been ruled out of the upcoming one-day international (ODI) series against Pakistan due to injury.

Henry sustained an abdominal strain during the second Test, which concluded on Friday in Karachi. Despite the injury, Henry continued to play through the final session of the fifth day.

New Zealand coach Gary Stead stated that Henry “will be withdrawn from the ODI side.” It is not yet known who will replace Henry in the squad.

The two-match Test series between the two countries ended in a draw, with the first Test also ending in a draw. This resulted in New Zealand being unable to claim their first series win in Pakistan in 53 years.

The ODI series between the two teams is set to begin on January 6. It remains to be seen how Henry’s injury will impact the New Zealand team’s performance in the series.

In the second Test, Pakistan’s last pair, Naseem Shah and Abrar Ahmed, survived 21 balls in fading light on the final day, while Sarfaraz Ahmed hit a fighting century, leading to a sensational draw.

Sarfaraz’s performance marked an improvement on his previous highest score of 112, made against the same opponents in Dubai eight years ago.
