Help Injured Daryl Tuffey to return home
Daryl Tuffey, the New Zealand fast bowler, will return home to recover from a bicep strain he suffered during the first one-day international against India in Guwahati. New Zealand have not named a replacement yet, and will do so if the need arises during the ongoing five-ODI series.

"Daryl developed some discomfort in his right bicep when playing but was able to manage it during the match," Mark Greatbatch, New Zealand's coach and selector, said. "It's appears to be okay when he bowls but he's unable to throw without pain, so he will return to New Zealand for further assessment and treatment."

Tuffey took 2 for 56 in eight overs during the series opener, which New Zealand lost by 40 runs to go 0-1 down in the series. Brendon McCullum and Daniel Vettori did not play that match because of back problems and their fitness will be assessed ahead of the second ODI in Jaipur on December 1.

"We are hopeful that both Dan and Brendon will be available for the next match," Greatbatch said. "Dan is more likely at this stage but we are monitoring both on a day-by-day basis. A decision on the final line-up is not expected until shortly before the match."
