Plunket Shield Match 3 Squad Comparison


Devon Conway was a very successful batsman for Wellington last season. This season, Fraser Colson has made it to the Wellington squad. In addition, Wellington has 4 batting all-rounders and 2 bowling all-rounders in the squad. Jeetan Patel and Logan van Beek will play a significant role as bowling all-rounders in the side.

While there are two new batsmen in the squad for Plunket Shield 2019-2020 season, Jakob Bhula and Jamie Gibson are two new batting all-rounders to join the Wellington camp. Wicket-keeper batsman and captain of the side Michale Bracewell is ever so important with the bat while Tom Blundell continues to find a spot in the squad as a wicket-keeper batsman. Hamish Bennett, Ollie Newton, and Ben Sears were among the top performers in the Wellington side with the ball last season. While Peter Younghusband is also in the squad, Ollie Newton, and Bennett will be the bowlers to watch out for in the Wellington camp.


Both Otago and Wellington had won 1 match in the Plunket Shield 2018-19 season. While Wellington only lost 3 matches, Otago had lost 6 and 1 ended in a draw. Therefore, Otago would be eying to start the season off on a positive note with some good performances from their key players. Hamish Rutherford, Cam Hawkins, and Neil Broom are the key players in the Otago batting line-up and while they have delivered some good performances in the past, the team has failed to consolidate the individual efforts and convert them to a win.

Anaru Kitchen is another crucial batsman for Otago while Nick Kelly will be the only batting all-rounder in the squad this season. While Dean Foxcroft and Nathan G Smith have contributed well in the middle with the bat as bowling all-rounders in the side. Jacob Duffy was among the top picks alongside Nathan G Smith when it comes to bowling. Matthew Bacon, Michale Rippon led the wicket-takers chart for Otago last season and will be again leading the side from the front.
