New Zealand Cricket have included former Netherland all-rounder Michael Rippon in the team set to tour Europe in July and August. Tom Latham will lead the New Zealand team for three-match ODI series against Ireland while Michell Santner will captain the national squad in the shortest format.

After the conclusion of their Test series against England, New Zealand are set to play three ODIs and three T20Is against Ireland, two T20Is and an ODI against Scotland, and two T20Is against the Netherlands. The team has named Michel Rippon, former Netherlands spinner in the squad for these tours. Dane Cleaver, Mark Chapman, Jimmy Neesham, Daryl Mitchell, and Ben Sears will also be included in the team after the Ireland series. Glenn Phillips has earned his maiden ODI call-up. 

"ICC eligibility rules allow players to represent an Affiliate or Associate nation while still remaining available for a Full Member nation. However, once they have been listed on an international match team sheet for a Full Member nation they cannot return to play for the Affiliate or Associate for three years,” a press release from NZC stated.
