England trio set for New Zealand
Notts trio Stuart Broad, Ryan Sidebottom and Graeme Swann will soon be packing their bags after being called up to tour New Zealand with England later this month.
England play the Black Caps in two Twenty20 internationals before taking part in a five-match One-Day International series, finishing with a three-Test series in March.
Sidebottom is likely to be a key member of the side in all formats but Broad will be hoping the seamer-friendly conditions means that he gets to add to his single Test cap.
And Swann should start the Twenty20 and ODIs as first-choice spinner, with Monty Panesar only selected for the Test squad.
The squad arrive in New Zealand on January 28 and will return to the UK at the end of March.
