New Zealand Cricket (NZC) have made announcement of their men’s squad for the upcoming One Day International (ODI) series against England. Fast bowler Trent Boult and all-rounder Kyle Jamieson are poised to rekindle their impact on the ODI stage after significant absences.

Boult, a seasoned campaigner with a remarkable track record, last donned the ODI jersey in September 2022. Over his illustrious career spanning 99 ODIs, the left-arm pace merchant has claimed an impressive tally of 187 wickets at a remarkable average of 23.97.

Jamieson, on the other hand, has been on the road to recovery from a back injury that sidelined him from international cricket since 2022. His return not only adds depth to the squad but also introduces a valuable all-round dimension.

Mark Chapman and James Neesham will miss the action due to personal reasons

While the return of Boult and Jamieson bolsters New Zealand’s prospects, a few players will miss out on the ODI series due to various reasons. Michael Bracewell, an instrumental all-rounder, is currently on the path to recovery following surgery for a ruptured Achilles tendon in June.

Bracewell’s absence will undoubtedly be felt, but the team’s well wishes for his recovery are resolute. Mark Chapman and James Neesham, prominent figures in the New Zealand setup, will also sit out the ODI series as they await the arrival of their first children.

As the squad takes shape, some players will embark on different journeys. Leg-spinner Ish Sodhi is set to return home after the T20I series against England to spend quality time with his family. Meanwhile, the indomitable Kane Williamson will join the squad during the England tour to engage in training and continue his rehabilitation after undergoing surgery for a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament. Tom Latham, the experienced campaigner, will continue to lead the side, providing stability and leadership.

Gary Stead, the head coach of the New Zealand cricket team, expressed his delight at the squad composition. He acknowledged Jamieson’s dedicated efforts during his rehabilitation and looked forward to witnessing him perform on the international stage once again. Stead also hailed Boult’s return as a crucial step towards the team’s preparations for the World Cup, emphasizing the significance of his experience and skill.

“We’re delighted to include Kyle in this squad alongside his earlier selection for the T20 squads to play the UAE and England. He’s been working extremely hard on his rehabilitation following back surgery, and we’re looking forward to seeing him back playing on the international stage. It’s also great to welcome Trent back into our ODI unit as he begins his preparation towards the World Cup in India,” said Stead in a statement.

New Zealand squad for England ODIs:

Tom Latham (c), Finn Allen, Trent Boult, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieson, Adam Milne, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Will Young.
