New Zealand’s Squad for ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 Announced
New Zealand Cricket has announced their 15-man squad for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, which will be held in India from October to November. The squad is led by Kane Williamson, who will be making his fourth World Cup appearance. Other key players in the squad include Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Devon Conway, and Martin Guptill.
Squad: Kane Williamson (c), Trent Boult, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Jimmy Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Mitch Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Will Young.
There are a few notable inclusions in the squad, such as Mark Chapman and Rachin Ravindra. Chapman is a hard-hitting batsman who has been in good form in recent months, while Ravindra is a talented spin bowler who has impressed in his limited international appearances.
The squad also includes two wicket-keepers, Tom Latham and Glenn Phillips. Latham is the incumbent wicket-keeper, but Phillips is also a capable batsman who can provide depth in the batting order.
New Zealand will be looking to go one better than their 2019 World Cup final appearance, when they lost to England in the final. They will be a strong contender for the title, with a balanced squad that has a good mix of experience and youth.
