Northern Knights bowler Tim Southee and Otago Volts batsman Hamish Rutherford have been called into the Black Caps for Wednesday's second one-day international at Napier's McLean Park.

The pair have been called in for the match due to injuries to bowler Mitchell McClenaghan and opening batsman Martin Guptill, who last night scored a heroic 27 to see New Zealand to victory in the first match of the ODI series.

Guptill had earlier pulled up with a hamstring strain which saw him retire hurt, while McClenaghan suffered a side strain after taking 4-56 in his bowling stint.

Black Caps physiotherapist Paul Close said McClenaghan would have an MRI today which would determine the extent of his injury.

"Unfortunately Mitchell will miss the rest of the one-day series while Martin will be out for Wednesday night and we will assess him again today."

Rutherford returns to the squad after an impressive debut in last week's Twenty20 series, while the experienced Southee has just returned to cricket after recovering from ligament damage to his left thumb.
