The young and talented kiwi skipper is a right hand batsman who is pretty good at scoring big runs for his team. The kiwi skipper has performed well with his batting skills and was awarded by the New Zealand Government for being such a good cricket icon for youngsters.
Apart from the experienced cricketers such as Ross Taylor and Martin Guptill some young players like IshSodhi and James Neesham have also been added to the squad for South Africa ODI series. Martin Guptill who bats at no 1 has quite a reputation with hitting sixes and adding quick runs in the early overs, he can be the key to the New Zealand team for Champions Trophy.
Ross Taylor, who has been the part of New Zealand ODI squad since early 2000’s has got some experience over the years while facing various kinds of bowlers at different pitches. He can be the big hope in the middle order of the New Zealand batting squad.
As we all know that this season of the Champions Trophy 2017 is going to be held in England & Wales and the pitches there are going to be fast, the fast bowlers such as Tim Southee can lead the Kiwi team to the victory with the help of their pace.
The New Zealand team has been very successive in the number of wins as they reclaimed the Chappell-Hadlee series earlier this year against Australia. Though the kiwi team has shown some class at various moments but they haven’t been able to win the big tournaments but now is the chance for New Zealand to correct their mistakes and claim the first title of Champions Trophy.
