Styris to miss Bangladesh tour

3:52 pm on 12 September 2010

The New Zealand cricketer, Scott Styris, will miss the Black Caps tour of Bangladesh, because he has a partial stress fracture to his spine.

The Black Caps medical staff say he won't be able to start bowling again until mid-October.

Styris says he's disappointed to miss out on the Tour, but is aiming to be fit again for the start of the Indian series.

The New Zealand side will leave for Bangladesh at the end of the month, with the schedule and squad announced later today.
