NZ tour of Ireland Scotland Netherlands

Former Dutch player Michael Rippon has won his maiden call to the New Zealand limited overs team to tour Ireland and Scotland in July and the Netherlands in early August.

According to a NZC media release on Tuesday, Rippon is the first specialist left wrist selected for the national team. New Zealand will play three ODIs and three T20Is against Ireland from 10 July and then take part in two T20Is and a single ODI against Scotland in Edinburgh from 27 July. He will then play two T20Is against the Netherlands in Amsterdam on 4 and 5 August.

Tom Latham will lead the team in the ODI series first against Ireland in Dublin, before returning home with Henry Nicholls, Matt Henry, Will Young and Jacob Duffy. Allrounder Mitchell Sandner will take over the captain for the remaining tours.

Rippon is part of the team that will play three T20Is against Ireland, a series of limited overs against Scotland and the Netherlands, for which he has played in the past.

Kane Williamson’s cousin Dane CleaverHe, who is currently with the test team in England, is the other non-participating player selected in both T20I teams. Earlier this year, it was chosen for the only T20I against the Netherlands at Napier, but this race was called off due to bad weather.

“Michael Rippon deserves his choice after consistent home appearances for many seasons”, selector Gavin Larsen he said. “His rotation in the wrist of his left hand is a point of difference and he also offers a little punch under the row with the bat.

“We have a lot of rotation options in the teams and I’m sure both Michaels [Rippon and Bracewell] will enjoy the opportunity to rub your shoulders with Mitch [Santner] and Ish [Sodhi] and learn from their experience.

“And Dane took his chance from his strong form for the Central Stags and it is great to see his recent call-up to the England Test team.”

With them from Ireland T20I onwards will be Mark Chapman, Jimmy Neesham, Daryl Mitchell and Ben Sears.

In 2013, Rippon had moved to New Zealand from South Africa to play for Otago. The 30-year-old has played 31 international games for the Netherlands and most recently played against New Zealand in three ODIs at Bay Oval and Seddon Park in March.

The fact that he can play for a whole new team as soon as he plays for an old team is due to an ICC rule that states that players can represent an Affiliate or Associate nation while they are still available for Full Members selection. However, once they have been recorded on an international match sheet for a Full Member country, they cannot return to play for the Partner or Partner for three years.

Meanwhile, given their workload, Williamson, Trent Boult, Tim Southee and Devon Conway will return to New Zealand after the England Test series. They are likely to return for the White Ball tour of the West Indies in August ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia in October.

Fast bowler Adam MilnThe one who returns from the hind thigh injury he suffered during IPL 2022, was selected for both teams. He could play his first ODI in almost five years while Glenn Phillips has joined the ODI team for the first time.

Opener Finn Allen and seamer Ben Sears could also make their ODI debuts, having already played some T20I.

“First of all, it’s really exciting to start touring in these developing cricket countries,” Larsen said. “With more Member States playing at home and away, we see how much they are improving and we know they will have fun on their own terms.

“During the England Test Series and in the middle of another busy year, these tours would always be an opportunity to further our depth in white cricket.”

Coach Gary Stead will take a short break with Shane Jurgensen leading the coaching staff for the tour of Ireland with Luke Ronchi and former international Luke Wright. Jurgensen and Ronchi will then fly home, with Stead returning as head coach and accompanied by Graeme Aldridge (bowling), Dean Brownlie (batting) and Wright (fourth coach) for Scotland, the Netherlands and the West Indies.

The first group will leave New Zealand for Ireland on July 3.
