New Zealand squad for World Cup 2024 Confirmed

Kiwis Cricket Board has Confirmed the New Zealand Squad for World Cup 2024 in June. The Squad was confirmed by New Zealand Cricket (NZC) on Monday.


New Zealand will play under the leadership of Kane Williamson, their first game of the event against the West Indies and then against the United States of America.

The Squad was revealed by the selector Sam Wells during an event organized at ANZ center located in Auckland. NZC said in a press release:

“This is Williamson’s sixth appearance in a T20 World Cup squad and his fourth tournament as captain.

“His experience is bettered only by Tim Southee, who has earned selection in his seventh T20 World Cup squad and currently sits as the leading wicket-taker in the history of T20 Internationals.

“Further to the experience offered by Williamson and Southee, Trent Boult has been selected in his fifth T20 World Cup squad.

“The squad also boasts significant recent experience in the conditions with 13 of the 15-man group featuring on the team’s last tour to the West Indies in 2022.

“As well as that, six of the squad have also featured in the Caribbean Premier League T20 competition.

“Bowler Matt Henry and batting all-rounder Rachin Ravindra are the only two members of the 15 without ICC T20 World Cup experience.”

Adma Milne will be out of the squad due to ankle surgery, and Kyle Jamieson will also not be available for selection as he recently recovered from a back injury.

Gary Stead will be the head coach, Luke Ronchi, and Jacob Oram will be the batting and bowling coach, respectively, while James Foster will act as an assistant coach for the New Zealand team with a focus on fielding.
