The BLACKCAPS’ first post-McCullum Test squad has been named for their winter tours to Zimbabwe and South Africa. After a long break for the national team following the T20 World Cup, these tours signal the start of a hectic few months with visits to India and Australia coming up alongside Pakistan, Bangladesh, Australia, and South Africa visiting New Zealand.
