New Zealand fast bowler Mark Gillespie has failed to win a central contract despite his heroics against South Africa.
Gillespie returned to the national team in March after a four-year absence - taking 5-59 in his comeback game in the second Test against the Proteas before following it up with 6-113 in the first innings of the third Test in Wellington.
However despite been included in the squad for the tour to the West Indies, the 32-year-old has not been awarded one of the 20 national contracts.
Andy McKay, Luke Woodcock, Reece Young, Neil Broom, Hamish Bennett and Jesse Ryder have not had their contracts renewed.
However Dean Brownlie, Doug Bracewell, Andrew Ellis, Tarun Nethula, James Franklin and Kruger van Wyk have been offered deals.
National selection manager Kim Littlejohn said: "It's an exciting time for the Black Caps with a number of important series in the 2012-13 season including the ICC World Twenty20 tournament.
"We believe the contracted players will be integral to the success of the team in what will be a demanding period against highly-ranked opposition.
"There were some difficult decisions and it's disappointing for the players who did not have their contracts renewed.
"We are confident they will continue to work hard and look to force their way into the team through performance."
New Zealand: Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Dean Brownlie, Andrew Ellis, Daniel Flynn, James Franklin, Martin Guptill, Chris Martin, Brendon McCullum, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Tarun Nethula, Rob Nicol, Jacob Oram, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Kruger van Wyk, Daniel Vettori, BJ Watling, Kane Williamson.
