Opportunity found in youth

Injuries to several star players have forced the New Zealand selectors to select a very young 14-man squad for the upcoming home ODI series against Bangladesh. The announcement of the team has brought great joy to the youngsters who have been consistently performing brilliantly in the domestic circuit. Canterbury’s 22-year-old seamer Will O’Rourke and 26-year-old Central Stags all-rounder Josh Clarkson have earned their first call-ups, while leg-spinner Adi Ashok has been selected to represent the Blackcaps in ODIs for the first time.

21-year-old Ashok made his T20 International debut against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in August, but after that he could not get any other chance. Therefore, he would like to make a place in the playing 11 against Bangladesh on the basis of his leg-spinning ability, while the chances of him getting a chance to be included in the playing eleven during the series are also quite high.
