New Zealand Opener Munro Surprise Recall for T20 World Cup

Strong form in domestic events around the world has a hard-hitting nature still in the blend for a shock recall for this time’s T20 World Cup.
New Zealand has revealed expert nature Colin Munro is still in the blend for a shock recall for June’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

Munro hasn’t played an International match in further than four times, but chooser Sam Wells has indicated the left-hander is still being as an implicit option for the month-long event in the USA and Caribbean due to his good recent record in domestic events around the world.

The 37-year-old was the sixth leading run-scorer during the recent edition of the Pakistan Super League with Islamabad United and has the seventh most runs of any player in the history of the Caribbean Premier League, which will prop his chances of winning selection given New Zealand is list to play their group institutions at this time’s T20 World Cup in Guyana and Trinidad.

Colin Munro is potentially still an option for New Zealand T20 World

Wells revealed Munro declined the chance to feature during New Zealand’s five- match T20I series in Pakistan latterly this month, but said the stager remained in contention to win a recall into the Kiwis’ 15- player team for the T20 World Cup.

We got in touch with Colin. He is obviously been in fine form for the last many times in colorful competitions around the world and, in particular, has an excellent record in the Caribbean Premier League,” Wells said.

He made himself unapproachable for this stint but he is potentially still anoption.All- rounder Glenn Phillips was New Zealand’s leading run- arranger at the most recent edition of the T20 World Cup in Australia with 201 runs, while the likes of hard- hitting youths Rachin Ravindra and Finn Allen and endured right- hander Kane Williamson appear the first- choice options in the Kiwis’ top- order.

But Wells suggested Munro remains a feasible option, especially if a analogous type of player picks up an injury.

I do not suppose it takes a rocket scientist to work out that our top order is fairly settled, Wells say.

But if anything were to be with injuries and what- not, he is still an option for us.
