The 26-year-old, Shipley, hails from Greendale in Canterbury Country. He was the leading wicket-taker in last season’s Dream11 Super Smash. He is currently joint-second on the Ford Trophy wicket-taking table after claiming a hat-trick against the Wellington Firebirds in November. Kyle Jamieson was unavailable for selection as he continues his recovery from a back injury.

BLACKCAPS selector Gavin Larsen said Shipley had been picked on form. “Henry’s an exciting talent who we’ve had our eye on for a while. He’s taken his game to another level in the past 12 months. we’re delighted to see his progression given how valuable genuine all-rounders are in any cricket team,” Larsen said.
