New Zealand Indoor Cricket have named a 12-man Open Men’s squad for the upcoming NZ-Asia Cup, scheduled to be held in India this upcoming May.

The Cup will be the first major international indoor cricket tournament since last year’s World Cup in Australia and will also mark the first tour of India by a New Zealand side.

The Kiwis will be hoping to repeat their performance from last time after securing the last NZ-Asia Cup title back in April 2019 in Singapore, when they defeated Sri Lanka in the final.

Other sides expected to feature alongside the hosts are UAE, Sri Lanka, Singapore and UAE, as well as potentially an Indian Development (India A) side.

Recently reappointed Open Men’s coach Leigh Kelly has retained six players from the World Cup touring party, in which they lost to Australia in the final.

Additionally, he has brought in some younger talent, with three players from the victorious Under-22 Men’s World Cup side set to make their Senior Men’s debuts.

Some other experienced personnel from the wider playing group have been added and will bolster the core of the overall squad.

New Zealand Men’s squad for the 2023 NZ-Asia Cup:
