Wellington: Black Caps all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme will miss the upcoming one-day international series against the Windies after the sudden death of his father, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) said Thursday.
Zimbabwe-born de Grandhomme was travelling to Harare to be with his family and will be replaced in the squad by Doug Bracewell.
"This is obviously extremely sad news for Colin and his family and we're all thinking of them at the moment," selector Gavin Larsen said.
"Right now the most important thing is that Colin is with his family."
New Zealand Cricket said it did not know when de Grandhomme would return.
The 31-year-old moved to New Zealand in 2006, making his ODI debut in 2012 and breaking into the Test team last year.
His late father Laurence, who had played first-class cricket in Zimbabwe, died at the age of 61.
New Zealand has three ODI and three T20 matches coming up against the Windies starting next Wednesday, with more limited-overs matches to follow against Pakistan.

Broad smashed a counter-attacking 62 in a return to form with the bat then played a lead role as part of England's destructive pace quartet to leave the West Indies on the ropes after day two of the deciding third Test.
Bishop additionally said that the West Indies team had lost a lot of players during the pay dispute with the board, and hoped something like that would never happen again.
Broad, who is England's second-highest wicket-taker of all time in Tests, was dropped for the first match of the series — won by the West Indies in Southampton — and didn't take it well, expressing his disappointment in a TV interview during the match.
