New Zealand Announced Squad for ICC T20 World Cup 2024

 New Zealand Announced Squad for ICC T20 World Cup 2024 and will be led by Kane Williamson once again.

The BLACKCAPS, who will begin the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the United States of America in June, are led by Kane Williamson and have a plethora of tournament experience.

At a press conference today at the ANZ Centre in Auckland, BLACKCAPS selector Sam Wells unveiled the team captained by Williamson.

Williamson is participating in his sixth T20 World Cup as captain and his fourth overall.

The only player with more experience than him is Tim Southee, who was selected for his seventh T20 World Cup team and is now the highest wicket-taker in T20 International history.

In addition to the experience that Southee and Williamson provided, Trent Boult was chosen for his fifth T20 World Cup.

Thirteen of the squad’s fifteen members participated in the team’s most recent trip to the West Indies in 2022, giving them a wealth of recent experience in the circumstances.
Furthermore, six members of the team have participated in the Caribbean Premier League T20 league.

Rachin Ravindra, the batting all-rounder, and bowler Matt Henry are the only two players in the 15 who have never played in an ICC T20 World Cup.

Pace bowler Ben Sears has been selected for the tournament roster and will travel and train with the team in addition to the other fifteen players as injury cover.

After having surgery to correct an ankle injury, Adam Milne was ruled out, while Kyle Jamieson was also not available for selection due to his ongoing back rehabilitation.

New Zealand Squad: Kane Williamson (C), Finn Allen, Trent Boult, Michael Bracewell, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Daryl Mitchell, Jimmy Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee.

Luke Ronchi, the batting coach, and Jacob Oram, the bowling coach, will be part of Stead’s support staff group. James Foster, who specializes in fielding, will serve as the group’s assistant coach.

Oram participated in the last men’s tournament hosted in the West Indies as a player, and he was a member of the coaching staff for WHITE FERNS during the previous women’s tournament held in the Caribbean.

On May 23, the squad members and support personnel who are based in New Zealand will depart for the competition.
