Wellington's left-arm spin-bowling all-rounder Jesse Tashkoff will lead New Zealand at the upcoming U19 World Cup in South Africa. The side will be coached by Paul Wiseman.

Squad: Jesse Tashkoff (c), Adithya Ashok, Kristian Clarke, Hayden Dickson, Joey Field, David Hancock, Simon Keene, Fergus Lellman, Nicholas Lidstone, Rhys Mariu, William O'Rourke, Ben Pomare, Quinn Sunde, Beckham Wheeler-Greenall, Oliver White

"These boys should be proud of their selection in the U19 side but they will know the hard work is ahead of them," Wiseman said. "We saw how strong the Bangladesh U19 side were that toured here recently, and we're expecting a highly competitive World Cup. We're very happy with the squad we've selected and believe the group will give us the best chance of success, but we're under no illusions how tough it's going to be."

New Zealand have been placed in Group A alongside India, Sri Lanka and Japan. They play Japan in their opening encounter on January 18.
