New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris will be out for six weeks after breaking his thumb in the opening Twenty20 match against the West Indies, New Zealand team officials said today.

Styris, a limited overs specialist, was injured during his short-lived knock of 21 from 12 balls in yesterday's match when he was rapped on the hand by a delivery from Fidel Edwards.

The West Indies won the encounter in a one-over bowl-off after the scores were tied at 155-all at the end of the regulation innings.

The New Zealand management said Styris was to have a pin inserted in his right thumb.

There would be no replacement added to the squad for tomorrow's second and final Twenty20 match, opening the way for either the uncapped Ewen Thompson or Friday's 12th man Mark Gillespie to make the starting XI.
