Tim Southee returns to the New Zealand squad to boost the pace department ahead of the second Test against Windies at Seddon Park, Hamilton starting from December 9.
“We’ve always shown a lot of confidence in the incumbents. BJ Watling has been a world class performer over a long period of time for us. Tom Blundell asked us a nice question and showed he deserves plenty more opportunities in time,” Hesson added.
New Zealand squad for second Test: Kane Williamson (c), Trent Boult, Tom Blundell (wk), Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Jeet Raval, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Neil Wagner
