What head coach Ryan Campbell said
“This has probably been my toughest selection process since I’ve taken over the job. I am excited about the blend of experience and youth,” said Campbell.
“Colin will step up to the vice-captaincy role and it’ll be fantastic to have veteran ten Doeschate come with us for one last hoorah.
“I think our strength will always be our fast bowling group and all of them have had a fantastic season, especially our county bowlers. I look forward to seeing them make a real impact during this tournament.”
