New Zealand's Squad For Cricket World Cup 2019

New Zealand's Squad For Cricket World Cup 2019

Wicketkeeper Tom Blundell, who made a century on his test debut is ready to in action. New Zealand's selector has decided to give a chance to this young wicketkeeper to play one-day international matches at the ICC mega event. So, Tom has been included in New Zealand's 15-man squad for the Cricket World Cup 2019.

The 28-year-old Wellington guardian was the real astonishment in the squad named Wednesday by mentor and team coach Gary Stead and selector Gavin Larsen. New Zealand is the first country to name its World Cup line-up.

Blundell has played two Tests and three Twenty20 internationals yet missed New Zealand's last domestic season and has found the middle value of just 23 at a strike rate of 79 out of 40 List A matches to date.

Tim Seifert, a forceful top-order batsman who has ODI experience and scored 84 and 43 in T20 internationals against India this season, was likely the favored possibility to back up Latham before enduring a broken finger in the last round of the domestic season.

Seifert will be over that damage in time for the World Cup yet Blundell, New Zealand's back-up Test manager behind B.J. Watling, is currently observed as better with the gloves.

Tom Blundell came into dispute when New Zealand decided it required an expert professional to back up wicketkeeper-batsman Tom Latham at the World Cup, which begins in England on May 30.

Bowling Line Up

The determination of leg-spinner Ish Sodhi in front of Todd Astle is the other argument of the squad.

Astle seemed to have edged ahead in the race for the master spinner's billet when he was picked for New Zealand's last one-day arrangement of the late spring against Bangladesh. Be that as it may, he has played just nine one-day internationals and the selectors may have been influenced by the more prominent experience of Sodhi who has played 30 ODIs.

Astle bowls into the wicket more than Sodhi and was believed prone to be fit to English conditions however Sodhi has as of late been in remarkable structure, taking 26 wickets in his last four-day matches for Northern Districts. Hard-hitting batsman Colin Munro has been held in spite of an ongoing loss of structure which saw him lose his opening job to Henry Nicholls who currently joins at the highest point of the request with Martin Guptill. Munro has been picked as back up in the center request.

Among a flock of all-rounders, Colin de Grandhomme seems to have pushed out Doug Bracewell for the last spot. De Grandhomme has more grounded batting qualifications and his medium pace swing bowling may likewise suit English conditions. The other all-rounders are Jimmy Neesham and left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner. Seamers Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry have both been in great structure all through the household summer and have been chosen close by the customary new ball pair Tim Southee and Trent Boult.
