Devon Conway, Jacob Duffy and Rachin Ravindra within the New Zealand roster


Devon Conway averaged 59.12 out of 14 Twenty20 internationals

New Zealand added the uncapped trio Devon Conway, Jacob Duffy and Rachin Ravindra to their squad for two Tests against England in June.

29-year-old batsman Conway has played three one-day caps and 14 Twenty20s.

Seamer Duffy, 26, was featured in a T20, while 21-year-old spin bowling all-rounder Ravindra could be the youngest Black Caps Test player in eight years.

The first test will take place on June 2nd at Lord's. The series ends in Edgbaston.

Number two in the world, New Zealand has named a 20-member party that will be reduced to 15 for the Test World Cup final against India starting June 18 in Southampton.

Known as the number one test batsman in the world, Kane Williamson leads the team but his and a number of other players' commitment will depend on their commitments in the Indian Premier League.

That tournament isn't slated to end until May 30th, and Cricket New Zealand said those involved "will be administered on a case-by-case basis based on when your team leaves the tournament".

Batsman Ross Taylor and all-rounders Colin de Grandhomme and Doug Bracewell have to prove their fitness after injuries at a training camp in early May before they can start the trip.

The pace bowler Lockie Fegurson was not included as he continues to recover from a partial tension break.

New Zealand squad for two test series against England: Kane Williamson (c), Tom Blundell, Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Devon Conway, Colin de Grandhomme, Jacob Duffy, Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieson, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Ajaz Patel, Rachin Ravindra, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Neil Wagner, BJ Watling (week), Will Young.
