Former Australia wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi has also been named in the side. New Zealand-born Ronchi, who played four one-day and three Twenty20 internationals for Australia, has now qualified residentially to play for New Zealand.

England plays the New Zealand XI on Feb. 4 and 6 ahead of three Twenty20 matches against New Zealand.
