Ian Butler will replace Trent Boult in the New Zealand side for the three one dayers against England starting at Lord’s tomorrow.

An MRI yesterday confirmed the initial diagnosis of a muscle tear in Boult’s right side which he suffered during the second Test at Headingley. New Zealand physiotherapist Paul Close said he expected Boult to make a full recovery in six to eight weeks.

The other two ODIs are on Sunday in Southampton and on Wednesday in Nottingham.
