Profile

An aggressive, but organised left-hander from Canterbury, Henry Nicholls' burgeoning domestic form brought him to the notice of the New Zealand selectors, who called him up to the national team in the 2015-16 home season. Though he would earn a Test cap in February 2016, it was in one-day domestic cricket that Nicholls had largely made his mark, hitting 454 runs in the 2014-15 Ford Trophy at an average of 75.66, with strike-rate of 105.82. Consequently promoted to the New Zealand A team, he further outlined his value in a home series against Sri Lanka A, hitting two hundreds and a fifty in his three innings in the unofficial Tests, before averaging 84.50 in the one-dayers.
