Brendon McCullum back into New Zealand side for Sri Lanka Tests

New Zealand announced their squad for the upcoming 2-Test series against Sri Lanka which starts on December 26. Veteran left arm spinner Daniel Vettori was not picked in the announcement despite his appearance in the third Test against Pakistan. Vettori said that he was unlikely to play the longest format again but did not officially announce it as he felt it was not right call time on his Test career after the tragic death Hughes. Brendon McCullum is set to return in to the national side with tests against Sri Lanka. The newly announced squad also includes orthodox off-spinner Mark Craig, ahead of Ish Sodhi as the sole specialist spinner.

New Zealand squad: Brendon McCullum(cap), Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Dean Brownlie, Mark Craig, Tom Latham, Hamish Rutherford(keeper), Tim Southee, James Neesham, Ross Taylor, Neil Wagner, BJ Watling, Kane Williamson
