IRE vs NZ: New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has announced the squads for the upcoming limited over series against Ireland, Scotland, and the Netherlands. New Zealand’s white-ball tour will begin with the Ireland series followed by Scotland and the Netherlands series.
T-20 stalwarts Finn Allen and Glenn Philips are set to make their ODI debut against Ireland while Adam Milne will miss out on the opening match owing to Achilles that is troubling him. Ace left-arm bowling all-rounder Mitchell Santner will also miss the first ODI as he tested positive last Saturday and failed to depart with the squad. Head coach Shane Jurgensen confirmed that Henry Nicholls will bat in the middle order to fill the gap that is left void due to Milne and Santner.
Jurgensen announced that Allen and Philips will make their respective ODI debut against Ireland in the first game. He added that both the players have been fantastic in the T-20 arena and it’s a fantastic opportunity for the two to represent the team in the 50-over format.

Senior players Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Will Young, and Matt Henry will also leave after the conclusion of the Ireland leg of the tour. Tom Latham will serve as the stand-in captain for Irelanfd series while Jurgensen will fill in the role of head Coach Gary Stead.
All the fixtures against Ireland, Scotland, and the Netherlands will count for the ICC ODI Super League which makes the criterion for qualification to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. New Zealand will face stiff resistance from the underdogs of international cricket.
New Zealand’s white-ball tour will begin with Ireland’s three-match ODI series which will be played in Malahide on July 10, 12, and 15, followed by the T20Is in Belfast on July 18, 20, and 22.
