Playing Role

Opening Batter

A bruising left-hander with strong shots square of the wicket, Colin Munro has earned a reputation as one of New Zealand's most reliable big hitters. Having made his international debut in 2012, Munro was in and out of the limited-overs teams, until he hit a tournament-topping 366 runs at a strike rate of 175 in the 2015-16 Georgie Pie Super Smash. That run of form earned him a steady T20 place in New Zealand's top order.

He quickly justified his place. His 14-ball half-century against Sri Lanka at Eden Park was the fastest by a New Zealand batsman in T20s. More quick runs against Pakistan in the following series saw him assume the No. 3 spot in New Zealand's 2016 World T20 campaign.

Munro made his first-class debut in 2006, but didn't really make a big impact in the longer form of the game till the 2011-12 season, when he scored a century and three fifties for Auckland. Next season he did even better, scoring three centuries in six innings, including a whirlwind unbeaten 269 off 252 balls against Wellington. He was rewarded with a call-up to the New Zealand squad for the tour to South Africa, and played in three Twenty20 internationals at the start of that tour. He made his Test debut soon after, in the second Test at Port Elizabeth.
