Black Caps hand out contracts

New Zealand have revamped their list of centrally contracted players with emerging stars such as Mitchell McClenaghan and Hamish Rutherford among eight new faces.

As well as the aforementioned duo, Tom Latham, Corey Anderson, Bruce Martin and Colin Munro have been handed deals for the first time, while Peter Fulton and Grant Elliott have regained their place on the list after missing out over the last couple of years.

James Franklin, Daniel Flynn, Andrew Ellis, Tarun Nathula, Rob Nicol and Kruger van Wyk have all been omitted, along with Jacob Oram - who was replaced during the year by Neil Wagner.

Also gone from the list are Chris Martin and veteran left-arm spinner Daniel Vettori, who turned down a contract due to uncertainty over his recovery from surgery on his Achilles tendon.

New Zealand contracted players: Corey Anderson, Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Dean Brownlie, Grant Elliott, Peter Fulton, Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Bruce Martin, Mitchell McClenaghan, Brendon McCullum, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Colin Munro, Hamish Rutherford, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Neil Wagner, BJ Watling, Kane Williamson.
