New Zealand’s veteran seam bowler, Kyle Mills will captain his country for the first time in their upcoming tour to Sri Lanka after Kane Willamson was ruled out with a fractured thumb. Williamson has already gone back home from Bangladesh and is receiving treatment, New Zealand cricket (NZC) stated.
“It’s disappointing that Ian’s back didn’t settle in time for the Sri Lanka tour,” national selection general manager Bruce Edgar was quoted as saying by Times of India.
He continued, “we’ll also bring in Otago’s Neil Broom for the final ODI and the two Twenty20s as additional cover.”
New Zealand will play three One-Day Internationals and two T/20s in Sri Lanka.
New Zealand squad: Kyle Mills (c), Corey Anderson, Neil Broom, Anton Devcich, Grant Elliott, Andrew Ellis, Tom Latham, Mitchell McClenaghan, Nathan McCullum, Adam Milne, Colin Munro, James Neesham, Rob Nicol, Luke Ronchi, Hamish Rutherford.
