New Zealand believe they have unearthed a genuine express bowler in Lockie Ferguson who was named Friday in the one-day squad for next month's limited over series against Australia. 

Newcomer Ferguson and spinner Todd Astle, who has played Test and T20 cricket, were the only new faces in the 14-man ODI lineup to defend the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy.

Colin de Grandhomme earned a recall after picking up a man-of-the-match award in his Test debut against Pakistan last week.

"There's some real gas to Lockie Ferguson so there's an element of surprise and no batsman like playing guys who are bowling with that sort of pace," selector Gavin Larsen said.
