New Zealand Test Squad Named

The New Zealand Test squad was named today by coach John Bracewell and had only one surprise amongst it, with Michael Papps recalled to the side.

Lou Vincent and Matt Sinclair were not considered for selection, both due to personal commitments. Sinclair is getting married and Vincent’s partner is expecting their first child.

The Black Caps arrive in Johannesburg on April 5 for a 10 day build up to the three match Test series, which starts on April 15.
