James Harris, the Middlesex seamer, will fly to New Zealand early after being added to England's Twenty20 squad as cover for Stuart Meaker who has picked up a neck strain.
Harris, 22, who moved from Glamorgan during the off-season, was due to be part of the one-day squad for the three-match series which follows the Twenty20s.
Before Christmas Harris was added to England's Twenty20 squad in India when he replaced the injured Stuart Broad but he did not play in either of the two matches.
Meaker was part of England's one-day squad in India but did not appear in the five games during the recently completed series. He has so far made two Twenty20 and two ODI appearances.
