Seamer Doug Bracewell has been recalled and batsman Peter Fulton dropped for New Zealand's Test series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates in November.
Seamer Ravi Rampaul's telling spell and all-rounder James Franklin's quickfire cameo carried the Barbados Tridents to a solid six-wicket victory over the Northern Districts - in Tuesday's rain-affected Champions League Twenty20 Group B fixture at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.
