Lockie Ferguson will captain New Zealand’s second-string team in ODIs against Bangladesh


New Zealand cricketer Lockie Ferguson is ready to lead the second-string side in the Rutherford ODI series against Bangladesh. Particularly, New Zealand will face Bangladesh in an ODI series, which begins on September 21, following the results of the presently held cricket competition against England.

The selection committee has taken the decision to rest the senior players in the upcoming series in order to invigorate them for the upcoming 2023 ODI World Cup clash, which will be happening on October 5 on Indian soil.

Tom Latham has monitored his team’s performance in place of the injured Kane Williamson in the One Day Internationals [ODI]. While adding Latham,  Devon Conway, Matt Henry, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, and Tim Southee are the players that will be missing in the approaching series.

Besides, Mark Chapman and James Neesham are the players whom the selectors have not included in their team because they would be absent for the birth of their individual children. The senior coach, Gary Stead, will also not be involved in the team, and therefore they will assign the batting head coach, Luke Ronchi, to his side squad in the three matches that are scheduled to be performed in Dhaka.
