After the two Test matches, New Zealand will play Pakistan in a three-match ODI series before touring India for three additional ODIs and three T20Is beginning January 18.

Team New Zealand have announced their ODI squad for the series against India and Pakistan, and have made major changes considering the planning and management for the ICC World Cup 2023.

Uncapped player Henry Shipley, who has never played for his country, received his first call-up after making an impression on the domestic circuit.

It’s encouraging to see players putting their hands up in our domestic competitions and their performances being rewarded with selection for the national team.
