New Zealand Cricket (NZC) named batsman Henry Nicholls for the warm-up game against West Indies on Thursday. New Zealand A will lock horns with West Indies for the three-day warm-up game ahead of the three-match T20I series and two-match test series.

Nicholls missed out on the first three rounds of the Plunkett Shield tournament after sustaining a calf injury. The warm-up game against West Indies will take place in Queenstown, will also serve as the practice for the Test format.

“It’s been a year like no other and we’re very fortunate to be preparing for such an action-packed summer. The complexities of the international schedule, along with the size of the touring squads and the length of time they will spend in the country has enabled us to build a very strong A programme,” Black Caps coach Gary Stead said.

New Zealand A will land in Queenstown next week for the three-day warm-up game against West Indies. It will be followed by the first match of the series at Eden Park in Auckland on November 27.

New Zealand A squad:

Joe Carter (Northern Districts), Dane Cleaver (Central Districts), Devon Conway (Wellington), Henry Cooper (Northern Districts), Jacob Duffy (Otag), Ken McClure (Canterbury), Cole McConchie (Canterbury, capt), Henry Nicholls (Canterbury), Michael Rae (Otago), Rachin Ravindra (Wellington), Michael Rippon (Otago), Ben Sears (Wellington), Sean Solia (Auckland), Nathan Smith (Otago), Blair Tickner (Central Districts), Will Young (Central Districts).
