New Zealand’s World Cup team announced, injured Williamson will be the captain, 6 players will take the field for the first time

New Zealand ICC World Cup 2023 Team: New Zealand has also announced its 15-member squad for the ODI World Cup starting from October 5 in India. Injured Kane Williamson has been included in the team and he will captain the Kiwi team in the World Cup. He is still recovering from the knee injury he suffered during IPL 2023. It is unclear how long Kane Williamson will be fit.

All-rounder Jimmy Neesham, who played an important role in the 2019 World Cup final, has also got a place in New Zealand’s 15-member World Cup team. Neesham batted in the super over in the final against England. However, the Super Over was also tied and England became world champions for the first time due to the boundary count rule.

Apart from Neesham, Trent Boult also played in the 2019 World Cup final and despite not being in the central contract list, both of them have got a place in New Zealand’s World Cup team. This will be the fourth World Cup for Williamson and fast bowler Tim Southee. At the same time, Rachin Ravindra, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Glenn Phillips and Will Young will be seen playing in the ODI World Cup for the first time. At the same time, this will be the third World Cup for Bolt, Matt Henry and vice-captain Tom Latham.
