2015-16 Commonwealth Bank Test Series | Australia v New Zealand – Squads

New Zealand’s BlackCaps are in Australia for a three-test series, in which history will be made, with the first ever Day/Night Test Match to be played in Adelaide.

New Zealand’s squad come back to Australia 7 months on from their loss to the Australians in the World Cup Final, with a mixture of experience and youth, led by Brendon McCullum.

Australia on the other hand, on the back of an Ashes loss, and the retirements of Michael Clarke and Chris Rogers, have a new captain in Steven Smith, while they also have a new opener in Joe Burns, while Usman Khawaja returns to the team, and Peter Nevill has cemented his spot as the teams wicket-keeper.
