Mills called up as cover for Mason

Kyle Mills has been named as cover for Michael Mason in the New Zealand squad for the third ODI against West Indies at Christchurch on Saturday.

Mills's selection is for only for the third ODI because Michael Mason was suffering from a mild lower back strain after the second ODI at Queenstown. Mills was sidelined with a groin strain at the start of the West Indies series and was not considered for selection.

A new squad will be selected after the third ODI.
