CSK players who might lead New Zealand

Probable contenders for New Zealand captain

Mitchell Santner

Santner remains a leading contender for the captaincy role. Whenever New Zealand Cricket has rested Williamson, the 32-year-old has often been the preferred choice. To date, he has led the Black Caps in 23 games: 22 T20Is and one ODI. His track record as captain is solid, with 12 wins out of 22 T20Is and a victory in the solitary ODI.

Daryl Mitchell

Despite being in his 30s, Mitchell remains a viable option, as he hasn’t shown any intention of stepping away from the game soon. The CSK all-rounder holds a lot of experience and can deliver in crunch situations for the Blackcaps.

Devon Conway

CSK opener, Devon Conway is another good option as New Zealand skipper. The left-handed batter has been a part of the Kiwi squad for the past 3-4 years and has been consistent with the bat. Conway can be a good option to lead the Blackcaps in future.
