The six members added to the ODI squad are Glenn Phillips, Todd Astle, Matt Henry, Henry Nicholls, Colin Munro and George Worker. These six players currently part of the New Zealand A squad will join the national team after the conclusion of the series against India A in Visakhapatnam on October 15.
Star batsman Kane Williamson will captain the Black Caps on the India tour comprising three ODIs and as many T20Is.
