Former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori has reversed his decision to retire from limited-overs cricket and will now be available for the T20 World Cup.

Daniel Vettori: Will return to the T20 international arena

The 33-year-old quit one-day and Twenty20 internationals last year but the lure of another World Cup was too much for the left-arm spinner to resist.

"Dan was the No.1-ranked Twenty20 bowler in 2009 and is widely regarded as one of the best Twenty20 exponents in world cricket," New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said.

"His availability is a real boost for the Black Caps with his style of bowling well suited to conditions in Sri Lanka."

Vettori has claimed 35 wickets in Twenty20 internationals at an average of 16.57.
