New Zealand Squad for T20 World Cup 2010: Daniel Vettori, Ross Taylor, Martin Guptill, Jesse Ryder, Scott Styris, Jacob Oram, Aaron Redmond, Brendon McCullum, Gareth Hopkins, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Rob Nicol, Shane Bond. Tim Southee, Ian Butler.
Players on standby: Jeetan Patel, Peter Ingram, Shanan Stewart, Andy McKay, Brent Arnel, James Franklin and Peter McGlashan.
Rob Nicol, 26, is the only new face in this squad. This young player has the possibility to make his debut in the forthcoming event. He has been included depending on his domestic performance. He can play an important role as a middle order batsman and occasional offspin bowler.
New Zealand’s most important batsman Brendon McCullum is now free from wicket keeping responsibility as Gareth Hopkins has been included as the wicketkeeper in this squad. Daniel Vettori will lead the team.
Prolific all rounder, Jesse Ryder, has made his return to the squad. No doubt, it is a strong squad which can win the T20 World Cup this time.
