New Zealand Team Squad T20 World Cup 2016 Preview:
New Zealand have also announced their T20I squad for the ICC World T20 2016 that will be taking place in India during March. They will be captained by the ever enthusiastic Kane Williamson. Kane has just been awarded by the Government for being such a superstar for New Zealand cricket and that would have certainly boosted his confidence to great heights. Nevertheless, he has shown his skills with the bat in the past and can be devastating on his day for the opponents.
Besides the captain, the batting department of New Zealand is very strong and there are lots and lots of hard hitting batsmen with the likes of Corey Anderson, Martin Guptill, Grant Elliot, Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi and Ross Taylor. All these guys have very well-established reputation on the international scene and they can certainly make their side rise high in the upcoming event.

|Trent Boult||Grant Elliott|
|Martin Guptill||Mitchell McClenaghan|
|Nathan McCullum||Adam Milne|
|Colin Munro||Henry Nicholls (wk)|

Especially, Martin Guptill has been in ecstatic form in recent times and has got three 40-plus scores in his last 4 T20I innings with a couple of well-struck fifties. He is definitely the devastator and his role will be to do just that at the top of the innings, i.e. demolish the opponent and pave way for the batsmen to follow.
Besides, Ross and Munro will be of great importance for the black caps in the middle of the innings. They can build it, they can attack the opponent and they can play just however they like at any given stage in the game. So, their presence in the middle of the innings provides New Zealanders with some sort of stability in their batting order. A good inclusion is Henry Nicholls who has given good account of his batting skills in recent past.
As far as their bowling is concerned, New Zealand have some good picks there as well. They have the services of Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Mitchell McClenaghan and Adam Milne in the fast bowling department. Corey Anderson can bowl well too, we all know that.
In the spin department, they have Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi and Nathan McCullum. However, the most important of them all is Ish Sodhi and his inclusion will be important in all the matches if New Zealand have to fancy their chances on the turning tracks in India. Yes, he can play a crucial role and he will have to recognize his responsibilities very well in order to give impactful performances.
