New Zealand announce 15-member squad for T20 World Cup
New Zealand Cricket have announced the squads for the marathon white-ball calendar which will see the Kiwis cross swords with Bangladesh and Pakistan in limited-overs series before taking part in the T20 World Cup in UAE. The Black Caps will be without the services of captain Kane Williamson, Martin Guptill and other senior players for the bilateral series. The decision to rest senior players was taken keeping in mind the challenges of playing cricket in the bio-bubble. The board does not want the players to get exhausted thus have decided to give them a breather. Most of the players will participate in the second leg of IPL as well.
New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said it is the responsibility of the management to take care of their players in the current pandemic environment.
