New Zealand visit to Pakistan Many players, including Williamson, will play in the IPL
Christchurch: The New Zealand Cricket Board has announced its squad for the tour of Pakistan, but it does not include many players, including Ken Williamson and Rose Taylor.
According to details shared on the New Zealand cricket team’s official Twitter account, the Kiwis squad for the tour of Pakistan and Bangladesh does not include many important names, including Ken Williamson and Rose Taylor.
The touring Kiwis will be led by wicketkeeper-batsman Tom Latham in place of Ken Williamson, with Trent Bolt, Kyle Jameson and Loki Ferguson out of the squad. The non-inclusion of these players in the team is due to the IPL schedule. On the other hand, the squad for the T20 series against India and the T20 World Cup has all the players in it.
New Zealand team Tom Latham, Colin D’Grand Home, Henry Nichols, Finn Allen, Jacob Duffy, Ejaz Patel, Hamish Bennett, Matt Henry, Rakin Ravindra, Tom Blundell, Scott Kaglin, Ben Sears, Doug Brasswell, Cole McConchi, Blair Tucker and Will Young.
New Zealand Cricket Board chief executive David White has said that reducing the burden on players during his busiest international season was his first priority.
It should be noted that the New Zealand team will first visit Bangladesh and then Pakistan in September. New Zealand is visiting Pakistan after 18 years. Pakistan and New Zealand will play three ODIs and five T20s.
