New Zealand announce squad for Pakistan T20Is
New Zealand have announced their final squad for the T20I series against Pakistan which will commence on October 31 following the series between Australia and Pakistan.
New Zealand players will be seen in the International cricket after a long break in their International schedules while other teams are rushing from country to country.
New Zealand are all set to tour the United Arab Emirates for an away series with Pakistan that includes three T20Is, three ODIs and three Tests, where the series will kick start with the first T20I game on October 31st.
Ahead of the T20I series, New Zealand already announced a pre-squad that had 11 players in the lists and they told that the final squad would be announced after the conclusion of limited over games between Pakistan A and New Zealand A.
Corey Anderson, the all rounder, and Glenn Phillips, the wicketkeeper-batsman, have been added to New Zealand’s squad for the forthcoming three-match T20I series after their good runs for New Zealand A in the on going tour.
Anderson and Phillips, who are part of the New Zealand A set-up, are expected to play the remaining two one day games against Pakistan A before joining the squad.
Corey Anderson was last seen in the color clothes in the game against Bangladesh last year in ICC Champions trophy in England. The all-rounder also had some fitness issues and went for a back surgery last year and struggled to make an impact for RCB in the IPL 2018, finishing with 17 runs and three scalps.
Phillips, who made his T20 debut during the 2016-17 season for Auckland, has compiled 97 runs in eight T20Is for New Zealand.
New Zealand T20I Squad:
Kane Williamson (c), Corey Anderson, Mark Chapman, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Adam Milne, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Tim Seifert, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Seth Rance
