Cantabrians George Enersen and Sam Lane have been named in an incredibly strong Black Sticks side for their test series this month against India, Malaysia and Japan in the Ready, Steady Tokoyo tournament. There are four players in the team who have played more than 200 times for the Vantage Black Sticks, while Sam Lane is the only player to not have played more than 50 caps for his country.
The side sees the return of Simon Child for the first time since the 2016 Rio Olympics, having missed the past three years through injury. Child has played 274 matches for the Black Sticks and scored a massive 150 goals in that time. The kiwis will be looking for all his experience as the team is gearing up for the 2020 Tokoyo qualification.
