Mark Chapman has been added to the BLACKCAPS ODI squad for the five-game series against Pakistan which starts in Rawalpindi on Thursday.
Head coach Gary Stead said Chapman’s performances throughout the T20 series were extremely compelling.
“The way Mark’s played against one of the best T20 bowling attacks in the world has been nothing short of outstanding.
“His match-winning knock in the fifth and deciding match was particularly special and we’re happy to have someone in such strong form added to our ODI squad.”
Chapman’s total runs tally of 290 is the most by any player in a five-game T20I series.
The BLACKCAPS tour party will expand to 16 with the addition of Chapman and new arrivals Tom Blundell and Henry Nicholls, while T20 squad member Dane Cleaver is returning home to New Zealand as planned.
