New Zealand batsman Martin Guptill might not be able to join the team for the 5th and final ODI of the series that stands at 3-1 against India, due to back injury.
Guptill was reportedly injured in the practice session ahead of the 5th ODI, and was taken off the ground after he failed to overcome the pain.
While Colin Munro was dropped and sent to play the Super Smash league, the 31-year-old has been called back and will join the team for the 5th ODI. New Zealand Cricket posted a statement on Twitter, “Martin Guptill is in doubt for tomorrow’s fifth ODI against India after aggravating his lower back while fielding this afternoon. He’s been assessed by team physio Vijay Vallabh & will be reassessed tomorrow morning. Colin Munro will rejoin the ODI squad tomorrow morning.”
