Injured Gillespie will miss series

World Cricket

Wellington - Fast bowler Mark Gillespie has been ruled out of New Zealand's two-Test series against the West Indies next month because of an ankle injury.

National selection manager Kim Littlejohn said the 32-year-old, who claimed two five-wicket hauls in New Zealand's most recent Tests against South Africa, suffered bone bruising and ligament damage after twisting his ankle while running.
