New Zealand spinner Daniel Vettori has been ruled out from the second test against West Indies due to a right adductor strain.
Vettori suffered the grade one injury on day three of the Test and will now undertake a rehabilitation period that rules him out of final match.
New Zealand Physiotherapist, Paul Close, said “Dan (Daniel Vettori) had some discomfort while in the field on day three of the first Test match with assessment confirming an adductor injury.
“It was managed during the match but further assessment has indicated he will not be fully fit in time for the next Test.
“Dan will return to New Zealand where here will be monitored closely and undergo a period of rehabilitation.
“He will require a rest from bowling and his return date will be determined by how well he responds to the treatment.”
