Guptill suffered the injury while fielding and didn’t open the batting as the Black Caps chased down 161 to claim the second T20I in Kandy by four wickets.

He will return home to New Zealand on Wednesday for further assessment, with Otago Volts and Worcestershire opener Hamish Rutherford called across from England as cover.

New Zealand coach Gary Stead confirmed Rutherford would join the squad on Thursday, as cover for Central Stags batsman Tom Bruce who tweaked his right knee while batting in game two.

There’s better news for Ross Taylor (left hip) who is fit and available for the final T20 on Friday.
