Profile

With a run-up reminiscent of Bob Willis or even Dennis Lillee - albeit without the pace of either - Gillespie shone in New Zealand domestic cricket as a specialist bowler at the death. In Wellington's 2005-06 season he took 43 wickets at 23.16. The promise he showed was nearly cut short in 2005 when he was struck below the eye, suffering multiple fractures and a smashed eye socket while batting against Canterbury.
