Team New Zealand Announced The ODI And T20 Teams For The Tour Of India
New Zealand Cricket has announced the ODI and T20 teams for the India vs New Zealand Series. Wicketkeeper Glenn Phillipss and leg spinner Todd Astle have been selected in the team. Apart from these, Colin Munro, George Worker and Henry Nicholls and Matt Henry have also got place in the team.
This expansion of the team has been done keeping in mind the performance of the one-day series between India-A and New Zealand-A. Earlier, New Zealand had announced the team of fewer members, which has now been expanded. Phillipss scored a century in the second match against India-A. They can be included in the final eleven. However, following the wicket, there is a strong contender Tom Latham to replace Luke Rooney.
Munro and Henry have played for the Kiwis before. Munro may come along with Martin Guptill to start the innings. Chief coach Mike Hesson said, “The good thing of Colin Munro is that he can put boundaries. They do not think much and bat in the same way. Bringing them in middle order can cause trouble.
