Henry replaces Wagner
Canterbury fast bowler Matt Henry was called up to the New Zealand squad for the second Test against Pakistan, starting on Sunday at Hagley Oval in Christchurch, to replace the injured Neil Wagner, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) said on Friday.
Wagner is expected to be sidelined for six weeks after sustaining fractures in the toes of his right foot during the first Test, which the hosts won by 101 runs.
Henry is being rewarded for his recent form which saw him register figures of 6-53 for New Zealand 'A' against Pakistan Shaheens in December.
The 29-year-old has also taken seven wickets from four Ford Trophy matches this season for Canterbury.
