Profile

A left-arm seamer, Neil Wagner is among several South African-born recruits plying their trade in New Zealand. Although not express pace, Wagner's strength is his ability to swing the ball. Once known only for his new-ball exploits, Wagner has added reverse swing to his repertoire to become a more complete bowler, capable of taking wickets even in unhelpful conditions.
