Giving out more details, New Zealand's physio Vijay Vallabh said the left-hand batsman felt some tightness in the right hamstring during the final ODI and left the field for treatment. The injury will be assessed over a couple of days, he continued.
"He's iced and compressed the injury and will be reassessed in a couple of days," ESPNcricinfo quoted Vallabh, as saying.
Neesham had made a smashing international return after a gap of more than a year when he hit five sixes in an over against Sri Lanka in the first ODI of their recently-concluded three-match series. Overall, he has played a total of 44 one-day matches scoring 934 runs with an average of 30.13.
New Zealand and Sri Lanka will play their one-off T20 match on January 11 at the Eden Park.
