New Zealand opener Martin Guptill is likely to miss the fifth ODI match against India on February 3. Guptill injured his lower back during the fielding drills on Saturday.

New Zealand cricket team shared the news from its official Twitter handle. Colin Munro will join the squad as a replacement for Martin Guptill.

The Blackcaps wrote, “Martin Guptill is in doubt for tomorrow’s fifth ODI against India after aggravating his lower back while fielding this afternoon. He's been assessed by team physio Vijay Vallabh & will be reassessed tomorrow morning. Colin Munro will rejoin the ODI squad tomorrow morning.”

 

India are already 3-1 up in the five-match ODI series and will face New Zealand in the final ODI tomorrow at Westpac Stadium. Rohit Sharma will lead the Indian team in absence of Virat Kohli.
