Fast-bowler Trent Boult and wicket-keeper batsman BJ Watling have been ruled out of the New Zealand side for the first Test against West Indies, which begins tomorrow in Antigua. Both men were named in the Black Caps' original 15-man Test squad back in May, but have sustained quad muscle injuries and missed the drawn warm-up match against WICB President's XI.

Injury-struck New Zealand have added left-arm quick bowler Trent Boult to their One-Day International squad ahead of the West Indies series. Ross Taylor, Jacob Oram and Ronnie Hira all suffered injuries during the 2-0 Twenty20 International series defeat and Boult was originally on standby for the five-match ODI series.
