New Zealand all-rounder Grant Elliott will be sidelined for at least a month after breaking his arm in the nets.

Elliott, who played Twenty20 cricket for Leicestershire last summer, put his arms up to defend himself from a ball that had been struck at him in the nets and suffered a fracture close to his wrist.

He is expected to be out of action for four to six weeks, putting him in doubt for New Zealand's one-day international against Sri Lanka on Boxing Day.

Elliott said: "My hand feels pretty good but mobility could be the issue."

New Zealand will play one-day internationals against Sri Lanka, Australia and Pakistan over the next few months and Elliott is expected to be a key player after his fine performance at this year's World Cup.
