Bracewell ruled out of second Test


Doug Bracewell has been ruled out of the second Test against Australia in Christchurch after picking up a right shoulder injury.

New Zealand will not call a replacement into their squad ahead of the Test starting on Saturday with pace duo Matt Henry and Neil Wagner already with the team.

Bracewell has been diagnosed with a strained rotator cuff muscle after reporting pain following the first Test in Wellington where he took 2 for 127 off 33 overs.

Bracewell was also the bowler to suffer when Richard Illingworth incorrectly called no-ball to deny him the wicket of Adam Voges late on the opening day.
