Hamish Bennett, a strapping pace bowler, can probably count himself a little unfortunate not to have played more for New Zealand. Having played for the Under-19 side, he was handed his first call-up in 2010 - taking three wickets on his ODI debut against Bangladesh - and made his Test debut in the same match as Kane Williamson. They were contrasting affairs. While Williamson scored a century in Ahmedabad, Bennett bowled 15 wicketless overs before picking up a groin strain. It remains his only Test. With the white-ball he found more success. He did enough to earn a place in the 2011 World Cup squad, but after that it was three years until be played again. In two matches against India he was good enough to work over Virat Kohli, but it was a brief comeback as a series of niggling injuries hampered his progress. After a long stint with his native Canterbury he shifted north to Wellington and his career was revitalised with a superb 2017 season which earned him a recall to the national side
