Auckland: New Zealand Cricket today announced the 30-man preliminary squad for the ICC World Twenty20 to be staged in Sri Lanka in September and October 2012.
National Selection Manager, Kim Littlejohn said: “This preliminary squad of 30 represents the best Twenty20 players in New Zealand.
It's a well-balanced squad with a number of proven performers, giving us plenty of options ahead of final squad selection.
"With the exception of George Worker and Anaru Kitchen, who have both shown promise at domestic level, each member has international experience.
From this large group we believe we can select a talented Twenty20 squad that will make a strong claim in Sri Lanka.
The squad will be reduced to a final 15 by August 18.
