New Zealand has been dealt a blow with Lockie Ferguson unable to bowl for the rest of the first Test against Australia due to a calf strain.
Making his Test debut, Ferguson suffered the injury on day one in Perth on Thursday.
The paceman had bowled 11 overs for figures of 0-47, but that will be the end of his involvement with the ball in the series opener.
"INJURY UPDATE: An MRI scan has confirmed a right calf muscle-tendon strain for Lockie Ferguson which will prevent him bowling in the remainder of the 1st Test, although he is available to bat," the Black Caps wrote on Twitter on Friday.
"Awaiting a further report which will inform the next steps of his recovery."
Australia finished the day at 248-4 after Marnus Labuschagne made an unbeaten 110.
