New Zealand captain

Kane Williamson

Kane Williamson is a masterful all-format batsman who has played 100 Test matches and more than 250 white-ball internationals for New Zealand.

His calm leadership was a feature of the Black Caps' run to the 50-over World Cup final in 2019 and he also led them to victory in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship in 2021. 

In T20 cricket, Williamson has captained Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL and was the leading runscorer in that tournament during the 2018 season. 

New Zealand key players

Trent Boult

Taking early wickets is the best way of derailing a powerful T20 batting line-up and Trent Boult is one of the most threatening new-ball bowlers in the game.

The left-arm paceman has been a magnificent player for New Zealand, claiming more than 300 Test wickets and starring in their 2015 and 2019 ODI World Cup campaigns.

At the age of 34, Boult's focus is now on T20 cricket and he remains at the top of his game as he showed in April when picking up three wickets in four balls – including India captain Rohit Sharma – in Rajasthan Royals' IPL victory over Mumbai. 

Glenn Phillips

Versatility is always an asset in T20 cricket and New Zealand's Glenn Phillips has all bases covered. He is a brutal six-hitter in the middle-order, bowls useful off-spin, is a sensational outfielder and can also keep wicket.

Phillips played a stunning innings against Sri Lanka at the 2022 T20 World Cup, blasting 104 off 64 balls in a game in which the next-highest score was 35, and his last five T20 innings against England were 62, 41, 22, 69 and 42.    

Finn Allen

Opening batsman Finn Allen has a career T20 strike-rate of 169 runs per 100 balls and he started 2024 with a bang, hitting a record-equalling 16 sixes in a T20 international against Pakistan in Dunedin.

That knock of 137 from just 62 balls showcased Allen's destructive potential and New Zealand's batting depth means he has the freedom to tee off against the new ball.

He made a stunning start to the 2022 T20 World Cup, thrashing 42 off 16 balls against Australia's Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins to set up an 89-run win for New Zealand, and his six-hitting power makes him a huge threat in the Caribbean.

New Zealand one to watch

Rachin Ravindra

All-rounder Rachin Ravindra made a big impression at last year's 50-over World Cup in India, scoring 578 runs and earning a lucrative IPL contract with Chennai Super Kings.

An elegant left-handed batsman, Ravindra caught the eye with his left-arm spin in his debut T20 series in Bangladesh in 2021, finishing the five-match series with bowling figures of 6-83 from 19 overs.

New Zealand's T20 World Cup prospects

New Zealand have reached two of the last three 50-over World Cup finals, also losing to hosts India in the semi-finals in 2023, and they have been hugely consistent in T20 tournaments too.

The Black Caps were beaten by Australia in the 2021 final and made the last four again in 2022 so they cannot be taken lightly, especially as they are favourites to win a group containing the West Indies, Afghanistan, Uganda and Papua New Guinea.

However, key opener Devon Conway has been sidelined with a thumb injury and the bowling attack, with the exception of Boult, could prove vulnerable against the best teams in the tournament.
