Styris out of action for six weeks


Scott Styris, the New Zealand allrounder, has broken his right thumb and is expected to be out of action for at least six weeks. Styris, who sustained a fracture during the Twenty20 match against West Indies at Eden Park on Friday, will have a pin inserted in to his thumb before undergoing surgery on Tuesday.

No replacement will be added to the squad for the second Twenty20 match on Sunday in Hamilton. Styris scored 21 off 12 balls in the tied game, which eventually went West Indies’ way through the super-over Eliminator.

The injury will be a setback for Styris, who retired from Tests last year to extend his career in the shorter formats of the game. He is set to miss the five ODIs against West Indies and probably the start of the one-day series against Australia in February.
