Profile

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.
