Cricket: Canterbury's Henry Shipley given first Blackcaps call-up for ODIs against Pakistan and India

Canterbury bowling all-rounder Henry Shipley has received his first Blackcaps call-up, named as part of the New Zealand squads for one day international tours of Pakistan and India in early 2023.

Shipley, 26, is currently second on the leading wicket taker chart for this season's Ford Trophy, with 12 strikes at an average of just under 12, including a hat-trick against Wellington.

Aside from his success with the ball this season, Shipley also boasts healthy stats with the bat, averaging just over 22, with three half-centuries including a best of 78 from 38 matches.

"Henry's an exciting talent who we've had our eye on for a while," selector Gavin Larsen said.

"He's taken his game to another level in the past 12 months, and we're delighted to see his progression given how valuable genuine all-rounders are in any cricket team."

The Blackcaps will also split their leadership across the two series.

Kane Williamson will lead the side in Pakistan, before returning home to prepare for February's test series against England, along with coach Gary Stead, and new test captain Tim Southee.

In their absence, Tom Latham will captain the side in India, while batting coach Luke Ronchi will step up in Stead's absence.

Auckland's Mark Chapman comes into the side to face India to replace Williamson, while Otago's Jacob Duffy will deputise for Southee in the bowling ranks.

Chapman has also been awarded his first NZ Cricket central contract, effectively filling the vacancy left by veteran batter Martin Guptill's departure in November.

Since his 2018 debut, the left-handed batter - who offers an orthdox spin option - has played a combined 27 white-ball games for the Blackcaps.

"First and foremost, I guess it's recognition of the work you've put in and it's always nice to be recognised for that, " Chapman told Newshub. "It's a step in the right direction.

"Being there and being around the guys, when there is an opportunity it's about putting the numbers on the board and contributing to the team as best you can.

"There's one eye to the one-day World Cup in India.. It would be nice to get on the park and contribute to some winning performances."

Batter Henry Nicholls and spinner Ish Sodhi are also recalled into both squads, after being left out of New Zealand's ODI plans for their last series, a 1-0 home victory over India.
