WELLINGTON - New Zealand fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan has been ruled out of the forthcoming one-day series against Australia, after the fracture above his left eye was diagnosed to be more serious than initially thought. "It's certainly going to take at least a couple of weeks for him to recover," coach Mike Hesson said. "It appears that the fracture is a little worse than first thought. Hopefully he will be available for selection for the World T20. He has done really well for us in the T20s." McClenaghan will undergo cosmetic surgery, though New Zealand Cricket had initially said it would take place on Friday. "It's a concern when anyone has an operation," Hesson said. "We're confident that Mitch is in good hands." McClenaghan was injured by an Anwar Ali’s bouncer during first ODI.
