New Zealand have suffered yet another injury blow, with seamer Daryl Tuffey being ruled out of the Champions Trophy after breaking his hand while fielding. He will return to New Zealand for surgery and will play no further part in the competition. Tuffey is the third New Zealand player to sustain a tournament-ending injury, joining Jesse Ryder and Jacob Oram in the list of those heading back home.

"He [Tuffey] broke a bone in the back of his hand. He needs to get back to New Zealand now to have surgery," Dave Currie, New Zealand's team manager, told Radio Live. Tuffey had performed well in the two games he played in the Champions Trophy, taking four wickets at 22.75.

Ian Butler, recovering from an intestinal infection but available for selection, will replace Tuffey for the crunch game against England at The Wanderers on Tuesday.
