New Zealand flaunt their new T20I kits ahead of the Australia series

New Zealand flaunt their new T20I kits ahead of the Australia series

New Zealand will be travelling to neighbour Australia for a series of 3 Tests and 3 ODIs in a highly anticipated series.

The Kane Williamson led side is also slated to host the Australian team for a T20I series at home in March of 2020 and for this special occasion, both the teams made a decision to go retro with their uniforms for the upcoming encounters next year. He sent down two spells during the session at decent pace, between them having a lengthy conversation with captain Kane Williamson, Stead and bowling coach Shane Jurgensen. "They've got some quality players and they play well as a team, so we can't take them lightly by any stretch of the imagination".

"Terrific work ethic and a good eye and plenty of time".

The Australians are taking the conditions in their stride and coach Justin Langer said they would "hopefully" have an advantage from it, but acknowledged that all players would be tested.

"They've got, in my opinion, once-in-a-generation cricketers littered throughout that line-up", McCullum told SEN Breakfast.

Further, Southee spoke about the prospect of Neil Wagner playing his first ever match on Australian soil for New Zealand.

"A great team, they will put in a much better performance". "If you're a fast bowler or batting in a helmet for hopefully a long period of time being in 40 is like being in a sauna", Langer said.

Brendon McCullum believes New Zealand will do everything they can to get Trent Boult fit for the first test in Perth but they won't risk him long-term.

"He plays the ball incredibly late".

"Lockie has done extremely well in white-ball cricket in his start to his global career", Black Caps quick Tim Southee said.

"He has got a great first-class record with the red ball, and has been around the group for a wee while with the England series".

"He is just waiting (for) his chance". And Neil (Wagner) brings his own unique style to the game as well.

The pace and bounce the 28-year-old can generate would appear tailor-made for Perth against Australia's batsmen, who were virtually untested by Pakistan's pacemen in the 2-0 trouncing with which they started their home season.

"I think most wickets will suit Lockie", Stead said.

Cricket Australia have promised to do their best to ensure a decent surface for the Boxing Day test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) after a match there was abandoned at the weekend because of a risky wicket.

"And different guys have been standing up a different times over the past few years".

On some lively net pitches, Lockie Ferguson looked a handful, but he might need Boult to be ruled out in order to make his debut despite the attraction of his pace on the Perth Stadium pitch.
