Profile

James Franklin began his career as a left-arm medium-fast bowler who could swing the ball, before morphing into an effective allrounder, particularly in limited-overs cricket. He was introduced to international cricket when barely out of his teens after New Zealand suffered a run of injuries, making his one-day debut in 2000-01 and playing two home Tests against Pakistan the same season, but he struggled to make an impact and lost his place after the Sharjah Cup in April 2002. Back in domestic cricket he worked on his batting, which he had neglected, and filled out generally.
