PACEMAN Liam Plunkett will play no further part on England's tour of New Zealand after the recurrence of a hamstring strain.

Plunkett suffered a grade one tear in his left hamstring midway through last month's one-day international series against Australia but remained with the team with the hope of featuring in the Trans-Tasman T20 series.

The 32-year-old Yorkshire bowler sat out the first two matches against Australia but returned in the defeat by the Black Caps on Tuesday, when he aggravated the original problem.

After assessment from medical staff, Plunkett has now been ruled out of Sunday's rematch as well as the five ODIs which follow.

A statement from the England and Wales Cricket Board read: "Liam Plunkett will miss the remainder of the IT20 series and England's ODI series against New Zealand after suffering a minor recurrence of his grade one left hamstring tear during the last IT20.

"An MRI scan today confirmed a minor hamstring strain and this will not recover in time to take part in the ODI series. A replacement for the ODI squad will be announced in the upcoming days."

England captain Eoin Morgan has missed the last two matches but is expected to be fit for Sunday's outing at Seddon Park.
