Profile

A slippery fast bowler, Matt Henry almost didn't play for New Zealand, as he underwent a major back surgery in 2012. Two years later, though, he was called up as cover during the ODI series against India, and thanks to a niggle to fellow injury-prone Hamish Bennett, Henry put the black cap on and registered the third-best figures for a New Zealand debutant in ODIs, claiming four wickets to seal New Zealand's 4-0 series triumph. Henry stays consistently over 140kmph, likes to bowl full, and had taken four five-fors in 14 first-class games spread over three seasons when he was called up for what looked like an apprenticeship with the New Zealand senior team. However, niggles to Tim Southee and Bennett, who himself had gone through a back surgery to Henry, gave him his chance. Henry's other taste of big-time cricket had been series against England A and India A.
