The official Black Caps account published the squad announcement video, which has garnered nearly 6,000 likes and 2,00,000 views in the two hours since it was uploaded.

Williamson will be playing in his sixth T20 World Cup overall, and his fourth as captain of New Zealand. The squad was chosen with consideration for the many kinds of weather that teams would face during the T20 championship, which is scheduled to start in the first week of June, according to head coach Gary Stead. “I’d like to congratulate everyone named today. It’s a special time representing your country at a world tournament. We expect the venues in the West Indies to offer quite varied conditions and feel we’ve selected a squad with the scope to adapt to those conditions,” Stead said.
