Brendon McCullum will lead a full-strength New Zealand squad for ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
The Black Caps boast a superb batting line-up that contains the likes of McCullum, Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson, while Corey Anderson and Grant Elliott are included as the two all-rounders.
New Zealand coach Mike Hessen said it was all about finding the right balance.
“Our batting unit has good depth and Grant’s inclusion assures us strong cover in the middle order,” Hesson said.
“He brings a lot of experience and his record in New Zealand and Australia conditions is excellent.
“There were some hard decisions to make, but we’re pleased with the overall 15 we’ve chosen.
“A lot of bowlers have performed brilliantly for us over the past couple of seasons, which certainly made it difficult, but we think we have the right mix.”
New Zealand open the World Cup on February 14 against Sri Lanka in Christchurch.
