Profile

Once a mediocre opening batsman for Canterbury, Todd Astle moved down the order and began to focus on his promising legspin to firm up his place in the side in 2009. He has reaped the rewards of his transformation since, bagging three five-wicket hauls in five first-class matches in his first year as an allrounder and taking over 30 wickets in each of the past two seasons as well. He has not had the opportunity to make big contributions with the bat in his new role, but remains capable and has developed a reputation as a tenacious fielder to boot. An injury to Daniel Vettori and Tarun Nethula's dip in domestic form saw Astle named in New Zealand's squad for two Tests in Sri Lanka in November 2012.
