A ‘Black Caps’ spokesman said Oram pulled a hamstring and missed their opening Group B match which ended in a five-wicket loss to South Africa at Centurion Park Thursday.

Franklin had been playing for Gloucestershire in the English county championship and shone with bat and ball against Kent, scoring an unbeaten 104 and taking 5-30 at Bristol.
