Craig McMillan has replaced Scott Styris in the New Zealand team to play the second matches against the FICA World XI at Westpac Stadium in Wellington tomorrow.

McMillan joined the squad before the first match in Christchurch after Jacob Oram was ruled out of the game with a back strain but couldn't find a place in the final XI. Oram, who had two days of rest, tested his injury at training today but he was still not considered for the second game of the series.

With McMillan coming in for the rested Styris, Hamish Marshall will move up the order to make way for McMillan at five, although John Bracewell said the batting order could be changed if the situation demanded.

New Zealand had romped home to a convincing nine-wicket victory over the World XI in the first game of the series as Stephen Fleming starred with a blistering century.

New Zealand
1 Stephen Fleming (capt), 2 Nathan Astle, 3 Chris Cairns, 4 Hamish Marshall, 5 Brendon McCullum (wk), 6 Craig McMillan, 7 Kyle Mills, 8 Mathew Sinclair, 9 Daryl Tuffey, 10 Daniel Vettori, 11 Jeff Wilson, 12 Scott Styris (12th man).
