Martin Guptill is a doubt for the fifth and final One-Day International against India in Wellington after suffering a back injury during practice ahead of the game. As a result, Colin Munro, who was released by the New Zealand to play the Super Smash game for Auckland Aces on Saturday, will rejoin the squad.
Guptill, 32, is said to have aggravated his lower back during fielding practice on Saturday. As he struggled to overcome the pain, he was taken off the ground by the support staff.
