Allrounder Sophie Devine has been ruled out of the Rose Bowl one-day cricket international series between holders Australia and New Zealand after succumbing to a foot injury.

Devine missed the White Ferns eight-wicket victory in game one at the SCG on Wednesday and after further consultation with team medical staff she returned home yesterday to have more treatment on the tendon she injured while bowling in the nets.

There are no immediate plans to replace her in the 13-strong tour party.

Game two of the four-match series is now underway at North Sydney Oval - Australia won the toss and asked New Zealand to bat first.

Both teams made two changes to their line-ups -- fast bowler Ellyse Perry and batter Alyssa Healy replace Leah Poulton and Alex Blackwell in the Southern Stars line-up while Frances Mackay replaces Lucy Doolan at the top of the New Zealand order and Rachael Priest takes the wicketkeeping gloves from Katey Martin.
