Profile

Hardworking with the ball and outrageously feeble with the bat, Chris Martin was the most consistent thing about the New Zealand pace attack in the first decade of the 2000s. A tall, angular fast-medium bowler with a high leap as he approached the crease, Martin relied more on accuracy and gentle seam movement than pace or prodigious swing.

Timeline
    • November 17-21, 2000
      A promising debut
      • Chris Martin makes his Test debut at the age of 25 in Bloemfontein in a losing cause, but shows plenty of promise, taking 3 for 89 in South Africa's march to 471 in the first innings. Gary Kirsten, Neil McKenzie and Shaun Pollock are his victims, and he follows that up with the wicket of Jacques Kallis in the second innings.
    • December 9, 2000
      The first duck
      • The start of something special, for he goes on to become a rarity in modern cricket - the classical tail-ender, joining the elite list of Courtney Walsh, Bhagwat Chandrasekar and Glenn McGrath. He starts that journey when he is bowled by Jacques Kallis in Johannesburg.
    • December 29, 2000
      A maiden five-for
      • He takes a step towards cementing his place as New Zealand's opening bowler, grabbing his first five-wicket haul against Zimbabwe in a drawn Test in Wellington. As his career progresses, he develops a preference for home conditions where he has a majority of his success.
