AAP logoAAP 9/11/2016

New Zealand's Test selectors have axed under-performing opener Martin Guptill, replacing him with Jeet Raval for the two-match home series against Pakistan.

Raval and Auckland teammate Colin de Grandhomme are the two uncapped players in a 13-man squad which also features one-Test spinner Todd Astle.

Fit-again seamer Tim Southee replaces Doug Bracewell in the squad beaten 3-0 in India last month, with spinners Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi and Jeetan Patel also omitted.
