Cairns, Harris in New Zealand squad for World Cup
Christchurch: Experienced all-rounder Chris Harris was on Thursday included in a 12- member New Zealand squad for the fourth One-day International against India. Harris, 33, missed the first three One-dayers of the ongoing seven-match series against the tourists due to an injury. He has scored 3,955 runs and taken 192 wickets in 216 One-day matches. The fourth match begins at Queenstown on Saturday. New Zealand, leading 3-0 in the series, also recalled all-rounders Andre Adams and Scott Styris. "With four matches to go in the series against India, the focus is now on trying out combinations and strategies with the 15 players selected for the World Cup," chairman of selectors Richard Hadlee said. Harris, Adams and Styris were named along with all-rounder Chris Cairns in a 15- member team for the World Cup, starting in South Africa next month. Cairns, recovering from a knee injury, and strike bowler Shane Bond were not included in the squad for Saturday's match. "At this stage, we will be conservative with Bond and Cairns as they are crucial to our World Cup campaign," said Hadlee.
