Lockie Ferguson believes New Zealand bowling attack remain a ‘handsome bunch’ despite losing fast bowler Matt Henry and have all bases covered for the semi-final against India at Wankhede on Wednesday.

New Zealand were the last to qualify for the semi-finals, having lost four games in a row after winning as many. They won their last league game against Sri Lanka to make the cut. Ferguson said they would not be troubled much with Henry’s unavailability due to torn right hamstring.

“We look good here. Matt Henry is obviously a big hole in our side and we’re still a handsome bunch without Matt Henry,” Ferguson told the media ahead of New Zealand’s training session at the Wankhede Stadium.

“I will take that on the chin, but now, from a cricket point of view, Tim Southee brings a lot of experience.” Ferguson said Southee also has the requisite experience of playing in India and that should hold New Zealand in good stead.

“He has also played a lot in India, which is great too, obviously pretty disheartened with how Matt Henry exited the World Cup, which was such a shame. “We know injuries always come at the worst time, but no doubt he will be supporting from back home and Tim Southee is raring to go,” Ferguson added.
