Wellington, Mar 5 (ANI): New Zealand vice captain Brendon McCullum is in doubt for the second one dayer against India, starting on Friday.

The Black Caps wicketkeeper and key batsman has injured his right thumb during the series opener in Napier on Tuesday night.

McCullum badly bruised right thumb when he gloved a ball from medium pacer Grant Elliott at McLean Park.

He had previously broken the thumb.

McCullum will bat in the nets today, but will not keep wickets. Northern Districts wicketkeeper Pater McGlashan will replace him behind the stumps.

Skipper Daniel Vettori is hopeful that McCullum would be able to play solely as a batsman. (ANI)
