Five of the New Zealand Under-19 team's most promising players will join the A side's winter training squad for close to three weeks in Darwin. New Zealand Cricket has decided to give Timothy Southee, Corey Anderson, Trent Boult, Greg Morgan and Kane Williamson a chance for further exposure ahead of the teams's departure for a tournament in Brisbane.

All five participated in the Under-19 series against India at Lincoln University back in February. Southee and Anderson, both fast-medium bowlers, turned out for Northern Districts and Canterbury respectively in this season's State Championship final.

"This camp will provide a further opportunity to extend and stretch the experience of these players who may become important members of New Zealand's Under-19 World Cup team next year," said Dipak Patel, the former international off spinner and current Under-19 coach. "It will provide a unique opportunity for them to experience different conditions overseas and should stand them in good stead for their upcoming World Cup opportunity."
