Profile

The son of the former New Zealand allrounder Rod Latham, Tom Latham is a versatile opening batsman whose early performances in Test cricket suggest he could fill that troublesome position for some time. He was named in New Zealand's squad for the Under-19 World Cup in 2010 and later that year made his first-class debut for Canterbury. Though he struggled to make an impact in first-class cricket, impressive performances in the shorter formats, including a maiden professional hundred in the Ford Trophy in January 2012, earned him a place in New Zealand's limited-over squad for their home series against Zimbabwe in 2012. However, it was a return to opening the innings in domestic cricket during the 2013 season which proved most significant as, following a Test debut at No. 4 against India at Wellington, he was promoted to that role in West Indies and responded with three consecutive half-centuries in the series. A maiden hundred followed against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi, putting him level with his father's Test ton tally, and in the next match he doubled that to become the first New Zealand opener in 24 years to achieve to score hundreds in consecutive Tests.
