New Delhi. New Zealand Cricket, led by Kane Williamson, has announced its World Cup 2023 squad early on Monday morning. It was looking difficult for Williamson, who was injured during IPL 2023, to play this World Cup, but for this tournament, this senior player worked hard to regain his fitness and made a place in the World Cup squad. Apart from Williamson, Tim Southee is the only player in this squad who was also a part of the 2011 World Cup squad in India. Apart from these, there are 6 players in this New Zealand team who are going to play the World Cup for the first time. New Zealand, the 2019 World Cup runner-up, will start its campaign in the World Cup 2023 against England on October 5.

Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Daryl Mitchell and Glenn Phillips are four players who are going to play the ODI World Cup for the first time and these players have previously been a part of the T20 World Cup team. All-rounder Rachin Ravindra and batsman Will Young are two players who will play the World Cup for New Zealand for the first time in any format.

The group of new players is balanced by an experienced core including Trent Boult, Matt Henry and Tom Latham, who are all included in their third 50-over World Cup squad.

New Zealand Cricket has made Tom Latham the vice-captain of its team. Latham had equaled the record of 21 catches in the last World Cup, this time too he will be seen playing an important role for the team with the gloves behind the wicket.

The squad also includes Lockie Ferguson, Jimmy Neesham, Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi, who performed for the first time in England and Wales in 2019.
