New Zealand will have to make do without Doug Bracewell for the opening two one-day internationals against Pakistan due to a hamstring strain.

The all-rounder was hurt in Wednesday's final Twenty20 victory over West Indies – a 119-run win – and is to undergo further assessments.

New Zealand coach Mike Hesson said: "Doug's worked really hard to make it back into the side after a pretty serious injury last year and he's impressed in the opportunities he's had.
 
"We know he's a hard trainer and back him to rehab well and be available for selection in the not too distant future."

Bracewell's Central Stags team-mate George Worker has been named as his replacement for the first two matches of the five-game series.
