Styris to miss Bangladesh tour

Styris to miss Bangladesh tour

New Zealand Cricket says allrounder Scott Styris will miss New Zealand's tour of Bangladesh next month because of a partial stress fracture in his lower back.
Styris will remain in New Zealand to undertake a progressive strengthening and loading program for six to eight weeks before beginning to bowl again in mid-October, the cricket board said.
The New Zealand squad named Sunday, which will be captained by Daniel Vettori, includes uncapped fast bowler Hamish Bennett.
New Zealand will play one warmup match before meeting Bangladesh in five one-day internationals in early October.
Styris said he hoped to be available for New Zealand's series against India later this year.
