Matt Henry, a pace bowler for New Zealand, has been forced to return home due to a rib injury, which eliminates him from participation in the next one-day international series against the West Indies. Henry experienced pain running down the left side of his body while exercising the previous week. Because the ailment has not improved, Henry will be replaced by Ben Sears for the series that will begin in Barbados on Wednesday.
Before that, on Sunday, the teams will compete in the third and final Twenty20 international that will take place in Jamaica. The visitors now enjoy an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
The decision to send Henry home was made as a precaution by the coach, Gary Stead, who expressed his optimism that the veteran would be able to participate in the one-day international series that would take place in Australia in early September.
According to what Stead had to say on Sunday about the matter, “although the injury is not too serious, we felt there was a big chance that it might develop worse through playing.”
We decided to bring in a totally fit substitute because the forthcoming one-day international series will begin on Wednesday and will comprise of three games spread out over a period of five days.
Ben, who is only 24 years old, is a promising young prospect, and we like his speed and the skills that he possesses.
Sears has participated in six international Twenty20 matches, although he has not been capped for any other format.
