Doug Bracewell: New Zealand seamer still not fit
New Zealand have named an unchanged 13-man squad to face England in the second Test in Wellington, which starts on Wednesday evening.
Seamer Doug Bracewell remains on the sidelines after missing the drawn first Test after cutting his foot on a glass while cleaning up following a house party.
New Zealand bowled England out for just 167 in the first innings in Dunedin, but the tourists produced a much-improved batting performance the second time around to earn a draw.
Veteran seamer Ian Butler, who replaced Bracewell in the squad for the first Test but did not play at the University Oval, is retained in the party for Wellington as is back-up opener Tom Latham.
The Black Caps will judge "closer to the time" whether Bracewell will be available for the final Test in Auckland on March 22.
Coach Mike Hesson said: "I was very pleased with both the bowling and batting efforts in Dunedin, and we plan to build on that in Wellington."
Squad: McCullum (capt), Boult, Brownlie, Butler, Fulton, Latham, Martin, Rutherford, Southee, Taylor, Wagner, Watling (wkt), Williamson.
