Wellington:New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has named a One-day squad to face Australia unchanged from the line up that will meet the Aussies in a Twenty20 international later this week.

Black Caps coach John Bracewell included pace bowler Kyle Mills in his side for the first two One-dayers after he passed a fitness test.

Jeff Wilson, Daniel Vettori and Scott Styris were also retained despite niggling injury concerns.

Bracewell was full of praise for Wilson, who makes his full return for the Black Caps 12 years after giving the game away to pursue a distinguished rugby union career with the All Blacks.

"Jeff has slotted in very well and probably surprised a few people, especially with his pace. He has given us glimpses of his potential and now he will get the chance to give us an eyeful," Bracewell said.

The squad announced is only for the first two One-dayers of the five-match series.

Squad: Stephen Fleming (captain), Nathan Astle, Mathew Sinclair, Scott Styris, Hamish Marshall, Craig McMillan, Chris Cairns, Brendon McCullum, Daniel Vettori, Andre Adams, Jeff Wilson, Kyle Mills, Daryl Tuffey.
