Profile

Fast, fearsome and frustratingly fragile, Shane Bond will be remembered as much for his misfortune with injuries as for his wonderful ability. Bond was New Zealand's best pace bowler in the post-Hadlee era, but missed more games than he played.

Timeline
    • January 20, 1997
      Fair first-class debut
      • Makes his first-class debut for Canterbury against Central Districts in Rangiora. Takes 2 for 42 in his first bowling effort; his first victim is his future New Zealand team-mate Mathew Sinclair.
    • November 22, 2001
      Worst team to debut against
      • Enters the Test arena against an imposing Australia, who pile on 8 for 558 dec. in Hobart. Traps Steve Waugh lbw for 0, but finishes with unflattering figures of 1 for 135.
    • January-February, 2002
      Shorter format, snappier debut
      • Has a more successful ODI debut, with 3 for 53 as New Zealand successfully defend 199. Has Mark Waugh caught behind in his first over. A month later, finishes the VB Series as the leading wicket-taker with 21 at 16.38.

Best Performances
    • 3 for 53 v Australia, Melbourne, 2001-02
      • After an inauspicious Test debut in Hobart, few could have predicted Bond would soon become arguably the bowler most feared by Australian batsmen. The first indications come in his ODI debut that same summer. Defending a modest 199 in the opening match of the VB Series, New Zealand have their work cut out. But Bond has Mark Waugh caught behind in the first over, and then removes Ricky Ponting and Michael Bevan to set up an unlikely win and begin his happy rivalry with the world champions.
    • 6 for 23 v Australia, Port Elizabeth, 2003
      • Australia have a formidable record entering this World Cup Super Sixes game - seven matches at the tournament for seven wins. But Bond knows a thing or two about his opponents, with 16 wickets at 12.93 from his five previous outings against them. New Zealand decide to bowl and Bond sends the top order packing, before claiming three more victims in his second spell. He finishes with the best figures by a New Zealander in an ODI, but his team-mates crumble and they lose by 96 runs.
    • 6 for 51 and 4 for 48 v Zimbabwe, Bulawayo, 2005-06
      • Nobody is quite sure what to expect from Bond in his first series for more than two years. Would he ever be the same after a major back surgery? He is hardly required in the first Test against Zimbabwe as the hosts capitulate twice, but in the second match he reignites his awesome firepower. Zimbabwe's top order have no idea and the middle order even less, and at one stage in the first innings Bond has 5 for 11. Match figures of 10 for 99 - he has never before taken 10 wickets in a first-class game - secure an innings victory.
