Milne and McClenaghan haven't played for the national side since the Twenty20 World Cup in India last year as both players have battled injuries.

Anderson's been part of the Black Caps squad over the recent summer only as a specialist batsman due to ongoing back problems but has been bowling for Northern Districts in the later stages of the season.

All three have been playing in the Indian Premier League and have satisfied Black Caps coach Mike Hesson and selector Gavin Larsen that they're fit to play.

The 15-man squad also includes just one specialist wicketkeeper - Luke Ronchi, who's struggled for form with the bat on the international scene.

Opening batsman Tom Latham is another option with the gloves.
