Tom Latham has made his return to the T20I setup as he will lead New Zealand for their upcoming series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
Tom Latham’s adaptability also means he can feature in a range of batting positions: Gary Stead
“We saw against India earlier this season the power and range of shots that Tom possessed. His adaptability also means he can feature in a range of batting positions. He led an inexperienced T20 squad to Bangladesh in 2021, and we were really impressed with his leadership of that group during a COVID bubble tour,” Gary Stead stated in a release.
He also talked about the new players who were announced in the squad, saying: “We’ve got players returning and guys potentially making their debuts, that’s a really exciting mix to have in the group for these matches. Players like Tim and Cole haven’t been around the squad for a little while, and I am sure they will bring good energy when they are involved. They have both earned their selection with strong domestic performances this season.”
