Wellington [New Zealand], Nov. 30 (ANI): New Zealand head coach Mike Hesson has confirmed that left-arm pacer Trent Boult has been tracking "very well" for Sunday's game against Australia in Sydney.

Boult had to miss the Hamilton Test against Pakistan due to a knee-niggle which flared up, but then got through a full fitness test on Tuesday.

"So he's recovered. I think when you know you've only got to bowl 10 overs, it's a lot easier than obviously the demands of the test match," Hesson was quoted as saying by stuff.co.nz.

Boult sustained a knee injury on New Zealand's tour of India which they went on lose 0-3 and he felt some discomfort when he slipped during the first Test against Pakistan in Christchurch.

The three ODIs will be played in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne on December 4, 6 and 9.

The New Zealand ODI squad is as follows:

Kane Williamson (captain), Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Colin de Grandhomme, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, Jimmy Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, BJ Watling. (ANI)
