New Zealand ODI Squad for India Tour: Hello, Welcome to CricBails, New Zealand Cricket has announced the ODI squad for India and Pakistan Tour on 18th December 2022. Henry Shipley gets his maiden call-up for Pakistan Tour while skipper Kane Willamson, Tim Southee, and Blackcaps Head Coach Gary Stead are set to miss the India tour to manage the workload.
Tom Latham will lead the New Zealand side in India as their main skipper Kane Williamson will be unavailable for the tour. Mark Chapman and Jacob Duffy will replace Kane Williamson and Tim Southee for India Tour and Luke Ronchi take charge as Head Coach in absence of Gary Stead.
India Origin Leggie Ish Sodhi and Henry Nicholls have been recalled for both tours while Kyle Jamieson, who last played in June this year, is still unavailable for selection as he continues his recovery from a back injury.
NZC selector Gavin Larsen said, “Henry’s an exciting talent who we’ve had our eye on for a while, He’s taken his game to another level in the past 12 months, and we’re delighted to see his progression given how valuable genuine all-rounders are in any cricket team. It’s encouraging to see players putting their hands up in our domestic competitions and their performances being rewarded with selection for the national team.
“The tour will also present further opportunities for the likes of Finn Allen, Glenn Phillips, and Mark Chapman, who are hugely talented but still relatively inexperienced at the international ODI level. It’s also great to welcome back the familiar faces of Henry Nicholls and Jacob Duffy, who were with the ODI team in Europe in the winter and have been in good form domestically.”
New Zealand will take on Pakistan in a three-match ODI series in early January after the two Tests before touring India for three more ODIs and three T20Is from January 18. The squad for the T20I series in India will be announced later.
