Ferguson, Munro and Seifert to face England in T20 warm-ups
BLACKCAPS speedster Lockie Ferguson will return from injury for the New Zealand XI in two T20 warm-up games against England at Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln.
The Auckland Aces fast-bowler has been cleared fit to play after fracturing his right thumb in Sri Lanka last month and will join BLACKCAPS teammates Tim Seifert and Colin Munro in the 12-man squad.
Munro will captain the side which features a mix of emerging talent and proven performers in the T20 arena.
After a six week lay-off Ferguson said he couldn’t wait to get back on the field.
“The thumb has healed well and I’m looking forward to having a hit-out at Lincoln,” he said.
“While it’s obviously frustrating to be side-lined, it’s actually been good to take some time to freshen up and be able to return with plenty of motivation and energy.
“It’s the beginning of a really big summer of cricket and it’s exciting to be starting it against a quality England side.”
The New Zealand XI will take on England in two T20 warm-ups at Bert Sutcliffe Oval on October 27 and 29 starting at 1pm each day with live-scoring atnzc.nz.
