Seamer Praveen Kumar has been ruled out of the first one-day international against New Zealand due to fever.
Ashish Nehra has been picked as the Uttar Pradesh cricketer's replacement for the match scheduled to be held in Guwahati on November 28.
"Praveen Kumar will miss the 1st ODI against New Zealand to be played at Guwahati on 28th November 2010, due to fever.
The All India Sr. Selection committee has chosen Ashish Nehra as his replacement for the 1st ODI. Nehra was picked after he passed the fitness test," stated a BCCI release.
Nehra was part of the ODI team for the series against Australia last month and also figured in the only completed match, but was ignored by the selection committee for the series against the Kiwis as he didn't submit his fitness certificate.
