New Zealand have included off spinner Jeetan Patel in the national squad as a possible cover for Daniel Vettori, who is expecting the birth of his first child.

 

Team manager Dave Currie said Vettori and his wife Mary are anticipating the possibility of minor complications associated with the birth of their baby, due shortly.

 

"In case Daniel is called away at short notice Jeetan has come in on standby," said Currie. "He will remain with the squad through the One-Day International series or until required," he added.

 

Patel was to play for New Zealand A in a first class match England Lions at Lincoln on Saturday.
