Posted On

Kane Williamson-led New Zealand will start their 2019 World Cup campaign against Sri Lanka on June 1. Tom Blundell, who is yet to play an ODI, is a part of the 15-man squad. He has been included in the side in place of Tim Seifert after the wicketkeeper-batsman sustained a finger injury.


T20 specialist Ish Sodhi also found his name in the 15-man list and was preferred over Todd Astle as the team’s second spinner.

Ross Taylor is the most experienced amongst all as he will be the seventh Kiwi cricketer to participate in four cricket world cups.


Complete squad:

Kane Williamson (c), Tom Blundell, Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, Jimmy Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor.
