MOUNT MAUNGANUI: New Zealand have brought in all-rounder Jimmy Neesham and leg-spinner Todd Astle for the remaining two one-day internationals against India, after losing a third successive game in Mount Maunganui on Monday.

However, they have decided to persevere with openers Martin Guptill and Colin Monro, who have both struggled for runs.

Neesham returns to the side to replace all-rounder Doug Bracewell, while Astle comes in for Ish Sodhi as the leg-spinner.

Astle, who has recovered from a knee injury which forced him out of New Zealand´s series against Pakistan in November, is also a capable lower order batsman in a side struggling for runs.
