Player:DR Tuffey, SE Bond
Event:ICC Champions Trophy 2009/10

DateLine: 23rd August 2009


Daryl Tuffey and Shane Bond have made it to New Zealand's Champions Trophy squad while Nathan McCullum misses out. Diamanti, who is playing for New Zealand A in India has also been added to the Champions Trophy squad.


Tuffey, a fast-medium bowler, is part of New Zealand's squad in Sri Lanka but will not be playing any limited-overs matches there since the team management had decided to take three spinners into the one-day and Twenty20 series. Coach Andy Moles said the turning pitches in Sri Lanka favoured spinners. "But conditions will be different in South Africa - two spinners will be sufficient there, and Daryl's inclusion will give our seam attack additional depth," Moles said.


Tuffey last played ODIs for New Zealand in the World Cup in 2007 after which he joined the ICL for two years. On his comeback he picked up 3 for 41 in the tour game against Sri Lanka Cricket Development XI.


Nathan McCullum, who is also playing for New Zealand A, is yet to make his one-day debut. All A squad members will join the national team in Sri Lanka on August 26.


Squad : Daniel Vettori (capt), Shane Bond, Neil Broom, Ian Butler, Brendon Diamanti Grant Elliott, Martin Guptill, Gareth Hopkins, Brendon McCullum, Kyle Mills, Jacob Oram Jeetan Patel, Jesse Ryder, Ross Taylor, Daryl Tuffey
