NZ call up rookie Allen for Bangladesh T20Is

Big-hitting youngster Finn Allen was named in a weakened New Zealand squad Tuesday for the upcoming Twenty20 series against Bangladesh, reports AFP. Uncapped Allen, 21, made it into the 13-man squad on the back of his outstanding domestic T20 form for Wellington, when averaged 56 and topped the run-count with 512. The squad will be without Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamieson, Jimmy Neesham and Tim Seifert, who are all taking a rest before joining the Indian Premier League. Paceman Tim Southee will captain in the absence of regular skipper Williamson.
