New Zealand’s limiteds overs opening batsman Martin Guptill will miss the upcoming series against Pakistan after straining his half calf playing domestic cricket, officials said Friday.

Selector Gavin Larsen said Guptill had no choice in but to withdraw from the one-day international and Twenty20 squads to face Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates.

“Unfortunately for Martin it will take him some time to get over this injury and, with a long summer ahead, we need to make sure we minimise the risk of him repeating it,” he said.

Larsen said selectors had not yet decided on a replacement.
