The Black Caps will be able to call on Daniel Vettori for this year's Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.
Vettori is coming out of semi-retirement to make himself available for the tournament.
He hasn't played international limited overs cricket since last year's one day World Cup.
Meanwhile, New Zealand Cricket's announced the 20 players to be offered Black Caps contracts for the year from August 1.
Dean Brownlie, Doug Bracewell, Andrew Ellis, Tarun Nethula and Kruger van Wyk have all been given contracts for the first time, while James Franklin returns to the list.
Hamish Bennett, Neil Brom, Andy McKay, Jesse Ryder, Luke Woodcock and Reece Young drop off, while Neil Wagner and Mark Gillespie are two of the notable omissions.
