NZC has confirmed their New Zealand U19 Women’s team for the inaugural edition of the U19 Women’s T20 World Cup which will be played from the 14th of January 2023 as per the U19 Women’s T20 World Cup schedule announced by the International Cricket Council. The official announcement related to the captain for the New Zealand u19 women’s team has not been made as of yet but will be confirmed in the coming few days. Like India U19 Women’s T20 World Cup squad, team New Zealand has also backed up their squad with players who got the experience of playing with the national senior T20I team to give themselves a great chance to win this inaugural edition of ICC U19 Women’s T20 World Cup. 

New Zealand U19 Women’s Squad Preview

Complete Squad: Olivia Anderson, Anna Browning, Kate Chandler, Natasha Codyre, Isabella Gaze, Antonia Hamilton, Abigail Hotton, Breearne Illing, Fran Jonas, Kayley Knight, Paige Loggenberg, Emma McLeod, Georgia Plimmer, Izzy Sharp, Tash Wakelin.

The selection committee of New Zealand has added Fran Jonas, Georgia Plimmer, and Isabella Gaze who have experience playing with the International senior women’s team which will definitely help in a big tournament like this one. Plus it will also give a great opportunity to other young cricketers who have the same goal to represent their country in the main national women’s squad. All three of these players have a combined International experience of 46 matches like Fran Jonas has played 9 ODIS and 12 T20Is, Georgia Plimmer has played 2 ODIs and 10 T20Is and Isabella Gaze has represented kiwis in 3 ODIs and 10 T20Is. 

Selectors have named a few players who have done well in the recently concluded New Zealand Women’s Development tour of India as well as the National Under-19 tournament. 

Team New Zealand has got good solid batters in the likes of Emma McLeod, Tash Wakelin, Kate Chandler, and Izzy Sharp who have scored heaps of runs in the National Under-19 tournament as well as the women’s domestic T20 competition. 

The pace bowling department in the New Zealand u19 women’s t20 WC squad is relatively new and inexperienced at this level but looking at the amazing young talent it is producing one can expect some great performers within the squad selected. 

Sara McGlashan who is the former New Zealand keeper has been named as the head coach while Donovan Grobbelaar and Tarun Nethula will act as the head coach assistants in other departments like bowling and fielding. 

Team New Zealand Matches Schedule
