Wellington: New Zealand skipper Stephen Fleming will miss the first of four limited-overs internationals against Sri Lanka following the birth of his first child, New Zealand Cricket said Thursday. Fleming has been replaced in the New Zealand team for Saturday's match at Queenstown by opener Nathan Astle, previously dropped after a run of poor form. Fleming left the team Thursday to be with wife Kelly who gave birth overnight, New Zealand manager Lindsay Crocker said. Daniel Vettori will lead the team in his absence. (AP)
