Queenstown: New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori will sit out the third one-day cricket international against Pakistan at Christchurch on Saturday.
The decision to rest Vettori was taken even as the second one-day international to be played between the two teams was washed out here.
Wellington left-arm spinner Luke Woodcock replaces Vettori, while batsman Kane Williamson and pace bowler Kyle Mills come into the squad for Ryder and all-rounder James Franklin.ettori will stay with the team as 13th man, while Ryder and Franklin have been released to play for Wellington.
Ross Taylor will be the captain while Jamie How will open alongside Guptill.
The changes are part of the selectors' rotation policy for this six-match series and they attempt to give all 15 players in the World Cup squad time in the middle ahead of the subcontinent-hosted tournament, which starts in mid-February, stuff.co.nz reports.
