The Netherlands have been given a boost with the addition of all-rounder Michael Rippon for their clashes with New Zealand.

The Oranje will play the Kiwis in a T20I and three ODI's as part of the ongoing World Cup Super League.

It's been almost four years since Rippon featured for the Dutch, and his return was welcomed by Head Coach Ryan Campbell.

"The addition of Michael Rippon to the roster for the tour is really great for us.

"We've been working on it for a while. He adds a dimension to our team and experience to this young group. I'm really looking forward to it looking forward to him going bowling in tandem with our young spinners."
