NZ vs Bangladesh – Devon Conway, Will Young and Daryl Mitchell earn first New Zealand ODI call-ups


The trio are part of a 13-man squad to face Bangladesh which will be captained by Tom Latham

Devon Conway, Will Young and Daryl Mitchell have earned their first ODI call-ups as part of New Zealand’s 13-man squad for the three-match series against Bangladesh this month.

With Kane Williamson ruled out due to an elbow injury, there is a vacancy in the top order which will open the door for either Conway – who has enjoyed a superb start to his T20I career – or Young to slot in. Tom Latham will captain the side in Williamson’s absence.

New Zealand have not played ODIs for a year – their last match was behind closed doors in Sydney last March before the tour was aborted due to Covid-19 – and they have only had four 50-over matches since the 2019 World Cup final.
