Cricket Wellington pathway manager Chrsi Nevin said preparation had been strong leading into a challenging week-long competition.

“The squad have a had great build-up this year and have been training together since September. There is some exciting young talent in this group and we look forward to seeing them perform on the national stage over the next 7 days.”
