New Zealand's most capped one-day cricketer, Chris Harris, missed selection Monday in the team to play Pakistan in five limited-overs internationals in January.
Harris, 34, has scored 4,250 runs and taken 199 wickets in his one-day career for New Zealand beginning with the 1990-91 World Series in Australia.
He toured Pakistan with New Zealand in November but played in only two of five internationals and has struggled for form in domestic play.
Test opener Lou Vincent was also omitted from the 13-man squad named Monday by new New Zealand coach John Bracewell.
Vincent's place has been taken by Craig Cumming, who made his international debut in Pakistan but averaged only 11.6.
Richard Jones, who performed strongly in that series and made his Test debut in Wellington last week, has failed to regain selection.
The matches between New Zealand and Pakistan are at Auckland on Jan. 3, Queenstown on Jan. 7, Christchurch on Jan. 10, Napier on Jan. 14 and Wellington on Jan. 17.
New Zealand: Stephen Fleming (captain), Andre Adams, Ian Butler, Craig Cumming, Chris Cairs, Brendon McCullum, Craig McMillan, Hamish Marshall, Kyle Mills, Jacob Oram, Scott Styris, Daryl Tuffey, Daniel Vettori.
