New Zealand cricket has confirmed Kane Williamson as the
Black Caps captain in all three formats.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is too familiar with the
fickleness of cricket's shortest format to take his team's
red-hot form for granted going their World Twenty20
semi-final against England.
New Zealand had entered their test series against Australia
with expectations they could beat their trans-Tasman rivals
only to be outplayed by their top order and pace bowlers,
coach Mike Hesson says.
For a player who showed so much
panache at the batting crease, Brendon McCullum's
international career came to a rather dull end at Hagley Oval
in Christchurch yesterday.
A big shout out to Neil Wagner; had it not been for a late
double-wicket hit from the bustling left-armer, New Zealand
would have been sagging against the ropes at Hagley Oval
Australia totally dominated the second day of the second test
against New Zealand at Hagley Oval today, and in the process
took a giant step towards regaining the world No 1 test
Brendon McCullum put himself in the history books one final
time today by ripping the fastest test century in history
against Australia at Hagley Oval in Christchurch.
New Zealand pace bowler Matt Henry will come in for the
injured Doug Bracewell in the second test against Australia,
captain Brendon McCullum said today.
Put a ring around it. When New Zealand captain Brendon
McCullum farewells test cricket at Hagley Oval this week,
Mitchell Marsh will probably claim his wicket.
New Zealand all-rounder Mitchell Santner has been ruled out
of the first test against Australia and replaced by spinner
Mark Craig, the team said today.
