All members of the squad have current or recent international experience with the BLACKCAPS or New Zealand A sides. Head of the selection panel, Glenn Turner, said the preliminary squad provided depth for the selection of the final team.

"The majority of these players will be in action over the next six weeks with the BLACKCAPS in Sri Lanka, or the New Zealand A side going to India," he said. "This means that the players who make the final Champions Trophy squad will have had some cricket under their belts going in to the tournament".

The final tournament squad of 15 players, to be selected from the above list, is due to be named by 23 August.
