New Zealand Cricket (NZC) issued a statement on Monday, where they announced that six national camps will be conducted in the next few months.
“New Zealand’s top male and female cricketers will return to squad training at the NZC High-Performance centre in Lincoln this week, in the first of six national camps scheduled for the coming winter months,” NZC wrote in the media release.
“The South Island and Wellington based BLACKCAPS and WHITE FERNS will train at the Canterbury hub this week, while a larger second camp for players further north will commence at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui from July 19,” it added.
