Fulton to lead New Zealand Emerging Players

Peter Fulton will captain a New Zealand Emerging Players team set to take part in a quadrangular tournament in Australia in July. Fulton and Tim Southee are the only players in the 15-man squad with international experience.

The group includes two men who have not yet qualified for full New Zealand selection but will do so within the next two years. Colin de Grandhomme, 22, has previously represented Zimbabwe A but having settled in Auckland he had a productive season with the bat in 2008-09.

The left-arm fast-medium bowler Neil Wagner has also been given the nod following a strong domestic summer for Otago. Wagner, 23, was born in Pretoria and last year played for the South African Academy side.

Other men picked for their first taste of New Zealand representative cricket include the Auckland batsman Anaru Kitchen and the legspinner Tarun Nethula. The squad will be coached by John Wright and Matthew Horne, and will take on teams from Australia, India and South Africa in Brisbane.

Squad Peter Fulton (capt), Nick Beard, Hamish Bennett, Te Ahu Davis, Colin de Grandhomme, Anaru Kitchen, Tarun Nethula, Jeet Raval, Lance Shaw, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, BJ Watling, Kane Williamson, George Worker, Reece Young.
