Firebirds Players Represent in Newly Announced BLACKCAPS Squad

Article added: Thursday 17 November 2022


Yesterday’s announcement of the BLACKCAPS v India squads brought exciting news for several Wellington Firebirds players. 


In particular Firebirds rising star Finn Allen is primed to face India for the first time after being confirmed in both BLACKCAPS squads for the incoming tour, starting in Wellington on Friday.


23-year-old Allen has already played 23 T20Is and eight ODIs for the BLACKCAPS, amassing five half-centuries and a hundred.

Meanwhile, Adam Milne fills the pace bowling ranks. Milne is in line to play his first ODI since 2017, building on his return to the T20 International arena during the recent Tri Series and last year’s ICC T20 World Cup in the UAE.


Added to the line up are two other Firebirds legends. Devon Conway will join the T20 BLACKCAPS squad, continuing behind the stumps, while Michael Bracewell will bring his batting and bowling power to the tour.


The tour begins with a three-game T20 International series across Wellington (Nov 18), Tauranga (Nov 20) and Napier (Nov 22), before moving into the ODI series across Auckland (Nov 25), Hamilton (Nov 27) and Christchurch (Nov 30).
