Profile

An aggressive wicketkeeper-batsman with a variety of sweeps in his repertoire, Tom Blundell enjoyed a dream start to 2017. In the space of three days, he earned his maiden call-up to the New Zealand squad, as a replacement for the injured Luke Ronchi, for the third T20I against Bangladesh in Mount Maunganui, won the Super Smash - the national T20 tournament - with Wellington, and then received his maiden international cap from Corey Anderson. A couple of weeks later, Blundell was called-up to the ODI squad for the Chappell-Hadlee series at home against Australia.
