New Zealand Probable Playing 11

Devon Conway accumulates runs steadily, while Finn Allen provides aggressive strokeplay, forming an effective opening partnership for New Zealand.

Kane Williamson and Daryl Mitchell will come in middle order to help Kiwis with their expereince and anchoring the batting. Meanwhile, Mark Chapman, a promising talent in New Zealand Cricket, has shown significant improvement with the bat across all formats in recent years.

Glenn Philips brings the power game in the latter half of the innings for Blackcaps in the T20I format, scoring quick-fire runs to propel their totals above par while giving a couple of overs of spin on a regular basis. Mitchell Santner, who has the captaincy experience with New Zealand in the T20I format, can strike a long ball if needed, but his bigger role is with the ball, squeezing the flow of runs of the opposition and taking key wickets.

Tim Southee and Trent Boult form a formidable new-ball partnership, consistently taking early wickets for New Zealand. Lockie Ferguson acts as the enforcer, contributing in all innings phases. Ish Sodhi, the right-arm leg spinner, plays a vital but often overlooked role, maintaining tight control in T20Is.
