Oram To Return For Fourth One Day International

All-rounder Jacob Oram has made a full recovery from a hamstring strain and will return to the New Zealand side for tomorrow's fourth One Day International against England at The Brit Oval.

Specialist wicket-keeper Gareth Hopkins makes way for Oram with Brendon McCullum once again taking the gloves, giving the side a better balance and more bowling options, especially since the emergence of Grant Elliott.

The series is level at 1-1 with two matches remaining with New Zealand taking a 22-run win at Bristol in the last match which followed a no result at Edgbaston and a 114-run win for England in the series opener at Chester-le-Street.

Oram has not featured since the final Test between the two sides at Trent Bridge earlier this month.
