On Wednesday, New Zealand announced the name of the 15 players for the cricket World Cup, 2019. Tom Blundell was introduced as a back-up wicketkeeper which was a real surprise. New Zealand, after having a heavy defeat to Australia in their only appearance in the final four years ago was marked as valiant losers and the Black Caps will try to remove that tag.
At the present time, New Zealand is on the third position in the one-day rankings after England and India. Gary Stead the coach of the team said Kane Williamson-led side had repeatedly given excellent performance at the top level and he confidently said the consistency would shine through at the tournament in England and Wales.
“We’ve got a squad here of 15 players that we think can give us a really, really good chance of going far into the tournament,” Gary Stead said.
“If we play close to our potential, then hopefully we can do New Zealand proud,” he added. After Tim Siefert broke his finger in a domestic match last month, Wellington keeper Blundell was selected.
“(Selecting) the spinners was very tough, and both had signs at times that they should’ve been the one that was selected… but at the end of the day that’s my call to make,” Stead said.
The pace attack comprises Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Matt Henry, and Lockie Ferguson while Jimmy Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme add all-around options. Henry Nicholls is ready to do the batting at the first with veteran Martin Guptill after replacing Colin Munro at the top of the order.
