The new board of the Cricketweb XI has today finalised details with New Zealand Cricket for the upcoming tour of their country. It will be the first overseas tour for Cricketweb XI in nearly a year after backroom issues had clouded the future of this tiny nation. New chairman; former test opening batsman Simon Fitzsimmons said it will be an exciting tour for the team with a number of new faces expected to be picked given the number of players unavailable.
The new national selection panel was also announced today, it too will be chaired by Fitzsimmons while skipper Neil Pickup and existing member Travis Demeza retain their spots. Two new faces will complete the team, they are Kyle Wright and Heath Davis.
The squad for the tour is expected to be named on Monday morning.
