Cricket-New Zealand add How to squad as cover for Flynn

WELLINGTON, March 24 (Reuters) - Batsman Jamie How has been added to the New Zealand squad for the second test against India starting in Napier on Thursday.
How, who was dropped from the side during the one-day series against West Indies in January, was recalled on Tuesday as cover for top order batsman Daniel Flynn, who is in doubt because of a hand injury.
Flynn suffered bruising and ligament damage when he was struck on the left hand by India paceman Ishant Sharma while batting in the second innings of New Zealand's 10-wicket defeat in the opening test at Hamilton.
The player batted through the pain to make 67 but was unable to complete practice on Tuesday, forcing the selectors to call for reinforcements.
