“Colin will take on the role of vice-captain and it is fantastic to announce that veteran Ryan ten Doeschate is coming along to perform one more time at this tournament. Our strength has always been our group of fast bowlers and they have all had a great season, especially our county bowlers. I’m looking forward to seeing them make a serious impact at the World Cup.”
