Ahead of the all important Semi-Finals of the 2015 World Cup, New Zealand fast bowler Adam Milne has been ruled out of the encounter due to a heel injury. Kiwis coach Mike Hesson called up Matt Henry to join the squad. Henry was seen training with the New Zealanders earlier today while waiting formal International Cricket Council approval to join the squad

Coach Mike Hesson said thatOnce we get to the ground tomorrow we’ll look at whoever is available in the squad and we’ll look at the wicket again and we’ll pick what we deem to be the best squad. If Henry gets ICC approval he’ll be considered along with the others.

Captain Brendon McCullum said the loss of Milne could force a rethink of New Zealand’s strategy for the sudden-death match against South Africa.

The way we have operated with Adam in that third seamer role has worked quite well for us coming in after our two opening bowlers swinging the ball. That doesn’t mean we have to roll out the same game plan or same strategy, but it has served us well over the last little while. We probably need to have another look at the wicket tomorrow, look at the overhead conditions as well and try and factor all of those things in, said skipper Brendon McCullum.
