New Zealand all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme will miss the upcoming One-Day International series against West Indies following the death of his father.
The 31-year-old, who scored his maiden Test century in the Wellington game against Windies will leave to his place of birth Zimbabwe and has been replaced by Doug Bracewell in the squad.
The news was confirmed by New Zealand chief selector Gavin Larsen.
"This is obviously extremely sad news for Colin and his family and we're all thinking of them at the moment," said Larsen.
"Right now the most important thing is that Colin is with his family."
Bracewell has played 14 ODIs for New Zealand previously and has snared 18 wickets but his last appearance in the format came in October last year.
The three-match ODI series between New Zealand and West Indies will be played between 20th and 26th December with Whangarei and Christchurch being the venues.
