National coach Ryan Campbell:
“I am delighted to make this selection announcement for the 2021 T20 World Cup. This is probably the toughest selection process I have been through since starting my role as national coach. I am very satisfied with the mix between experience and youth in the team
Colin Ackermann will take on the role of vice-captain and it is fantastic to announce that veteran Ryan ten Doeschate is coming along to perform one more time at this tournament.
Our strength has always been our group of fast bowlers and they have all had a great season, especially our county bowlers. I’m looking forward to seeing them make a serious impact at the World Cup.”
