    DD duo selected in Kiwi Test squad

    Taylor returns from injury, Bracewell picked against SA

    By IPL desk
    Mumbai 02 March 2012
    Ross Taylor and Doug Bracewell have been selected in the Kiwi Test squad for a three-match home series against South Africa to be played in March. The Daredevils have traded Taylor from the Rajasthan Royals, while Bracewell was bought for USD 50,000 in the 2012 Player Auction.

    Taylor will return to lead New Zealand in the Tests after sitting out the ODI series due to a calf injury. Bracewell keeps his Test spot after an impressive show against Zimbabwe and Australia in 2011. In his four Tests so far, Bracewell has picked up 21 wickets at an average of 16.47.

    In all, the Kiwi Test squad comprises four players that will play in the fifth edition of the IPL. Brendon McCullum from the Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Daniel Vettori are included in the 13-man squad.

    "We are pleased with the way the Test team has performed this summer and this group is looking forward to the challenge of continuing that success," Kim Littlejohn New Zealand’s national selection manager said.

    The first Test begins on March 7th at the University Oval in Dunedin.

    New Zealand Test Squad:
    Ross Taylor (capt), Brent Arnel, Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Andrew Ellis, Martin Guptill, Chris Martin, Brendon McCullum, Rob Nicol, Tim Southee, Daniel Vettori, BJ Watling, Kane Williamson
