Injured Bolt coming home

7:05 am on 15 June 2015

Trent Boult is coming home from the New Zealand cricketers' tour of England for a further assessment of the back injury which ruled him out of this morning's third one day international in Southampton.

Matt Henry took his place in the starting side today. No announcement has been made yet on Boult's replacement in the squad.

Boult's misfortune meant a one day international debut for fellow left-arm seam bowler Ben Wheeler.
