Profile

Tim Southee, a right-arm swing bowler, burst upon the international scene in great style when still only 19. Handed his Test debut against England in Napier, Southee responded with 5 for 55 before smashing 77 off 40 balls in the second innings with nine sixes to hint at a bright all-round future. He bettered that performance with 7 for 64 against India in Bangalore in 2012, also the best figures by a New Zealand bowler in India. Allan Donald had stated that Southee had the potential to become the best swing bowler in the world. His ability to generate late outswing at a brisk pace makes him a good attacking bowler in Tests; and his 2011 World Cup performance of 18 wickets at 17.33 suggested that he could be quite a handful in ODIs as well, when not affected by fitness worries.
