New Zealand have named their 14-man squad for the upcoming Chappell-Hadlee ODI series against Australia in December.
Fast bowler Lockie Ferguson is in line to make his debut, and has been joined in the squad by Todd Astle and Colin de Grandhomme, who have both featured in the Blackcaps' Test series against Pakistan.

“Lockie has been impressive on the domestic scene and bowls at a pace which gives our bowling attack a different option," Blackcaps selector Gavin Larsen said.
“Todd and Colin de Grandhomme have both been in our thinking for ODIs and their ability with both bat and ball gives the squad an important balance.
"It’s good to see Colin Munro return and immediately have an impact for Auckland. He's shown how dynamic a batsman he is, so it’s great to have him available again, especially in Ross’ absence."
The three-match ODI series starts in Sydney on December 4, before heading to Canberra on December 6, as the series comes to a close in Melbourne on December 9.
