Breaking News: Michael Bracewell to Lead New Zealand in T20I Series vs Pakistan

New Zealand have announced a second-string 15-member squad for the T20 series against Pakistan, with Michael Bracewell being appointed as the captain of the side.

This series will also mark the return of Michael Bracewell to the international stage after March 2023. The Kiwi all-rounder dealt with injuries that included a broken thumb and reprieve in the right archilies.

New Zealand Selector Sam Wells praised Bracewell for his hard work in order to return to international cricket.
Wells said, “Michael has faced a long period on the sidelines, and it’s exciting to see him back playing cricket again.” 

Wells further added, “The fact he’s back playing at a high level after an Achilles rupture is testament to his hard work and application.
He’s a well-respected leader and has captaincy experience for Wellington along with New Zealand A and New Zealand XI teams, which we believe holds him in good stead to lead the group in Pakistan.”

Another big point in the squad is the inclusion of young batter Tim Robinson, who had a phenomenal Super Smash as he scored 298 runs in just six matches for Wellington.

Talking about Robinson Selectors said, “Tim is still very early in his domestic career, but his natural ability and explosive power were on full display this season. Combined with his outstanding fielding, we believe he has a skill set that’s well-suited to the format.”.
