New Zealand Squad For T20 World Cup 2024

On Monday, the Kiwis announced their 15-player squad for the 9th edition of the 20-over showcase. The Black Caps chose an experienced squad featuring Williamson, Tim Southee, and Trent Boult. This will be Williamson’s sixth appearance at a T20 World Cup, his fourth as skipper. Southee will play his seventh tournament, while Boult will participate in his fifth as the Kiwis aim for their first title in this format.

New Zealand’s squad didn’t have any big surprises. But because of injuries, key players Kyle Jamieson and Adam Milne couldn’t make it. Also, despite playing well recently, Will O’Rourke, Tom Latham, Tim Seifert, and Will Young weren’t picked.

Colin Munro didn’t make a comeback, so selectors picked Rachin Ravindra, a young player, for his first T20 World Cup, along with fast bowler Matt Henry. They also chose Ben Sears as a backup for the USA and West Indies tours if needed.

Gary Stead, New Zealand coach, is really excited to see how well Henry and Ravindra do in their first T20 World Cup. He’s curious about their performance on the big stage.

“Matt has put a lot of effort into improving his T20 skills. That’s why he’s back in the running for selection,” Stead mentioned.

“Rachin has been doing great for the past year, and it was awesome to see him keep it up during the T20 matches against Australia.”

New Zealand plays its first T20 World Cup match against Afghanistan in Guyana on June 7. Then they’ll face West Indies, Uganda, and Papua New Guinea in Group C matches.
