Profile

An aggressive, but organised left-hander from Canterbury, Henry Nicholls' burgeoning domestic form brought him to the notice of the New Zealand selectors, who called him up to the national team in the 2015/16 home season. Though he would earn a Test cap in February 2016, it is in one-day cricket that Nicholls had largely made his mark, hitting 454 runs in the 2014/15 Ford Trophy at an average of 75.66, with strike-rate of 105.82. Consequently promoted to the New Zealand A team, he further outlined his value in a home series against Sri Lanka A, hitting two hundreds and a fifty in his three innings in the unofficial Tests, before averaging 84.50 in the one-dayers. His impact at the top level wasn't quite immediate - it wasn't until his fifth ODI innings that Nicholls crossed fifty, and though he scored a half-century on Test debut against Australia, didn't quite do enough to secure his place in the XI. However, coach Mike Hesson spoke of Nicholls as a player worth investing in, and the returns did eventually begin to come. He hit a maiden Test hundred against South Africa at the Basin Reserve, in March 2017.
