New Zealand Tour of England 2023: Player Squads, Fixtures, Venues - All you need to know
New Zealand is touring England to participate in a 4 match T20I and a 4 match ODI series beginning from the 30th of August, 2023. The 4th and the final ODI of the tour will be played on the 15th of September.
England last played an ODI series in Bangladesh in March this year. They had won the series by 2-1, courtesy a brilliant performance from Adil Rashid. However, England had been white washed by the hosts in the T20I series by 3-0.
New Zealand on the other hand played against Pakistan in a 5 match ODI series recently, which they lost by a 4-1 margin. However, the T20I series was won by the visitors with a margin of 2-1, courtesy a brilliant performance by Mark Chapman.
Ben Stokes has denounced his retirement plans and has been included into the England squad. It will be interesting to see how he adapts to the 50 overs format.
England Men’s National Selector Luke Wright said: “The return of Ben Stokes only adds to that quality with his match-winning ability and leadership. I am certain that every fan will enjoy seeing him back in an England ODI shirt again."
New Zealand have also brought their experienced bowler in Trent Boult back to the fold. Kyle Jamieson has also rehabilitated well and is back into the squad, making New Zealand a tough unit to beat.
According to Gary Stead, the head coach of New Zealand cricket team, "We’re delighted to include Kyle in this squad alongside his earlier selection for the T20 squads to play the UAE and England. He’s been working extremely hard on his rehabilitation following back surgery, and we’re looking forward to seeing him back playing on the international stage. It’s also great to welcome Trent back into our ODI unit as he begins his preparation towards the World Cup in India.”
Considering the bench strength of both the teams, it is poised to be an exciting contest.
