TEAMS

A wicketkeeper who has chipped away on the domestic scene for Auckland for a decade, Reece Young finally won his first call-up to the national squad for the Test tour of Sri Lanka in 2009. The promotion to become Brendon McCullum's deputy came after strong performances for New Zealand A and a productive 2008-09 season in which he was Auckland's leading batsman with 557 runs at 50.63. He first showed his batting potential in 2000-01 with his maiden first-class hundred against Central Districts but only one more came before his two triple-figure scores in 2008-09. He also played two seasons for Canterbury, in 2010-11 and 2011-12 before returning to Auckland. He featured in the Test side in 2011, playing the last of his five Tests against Australia in Hobart. He retired in July 2013 to focus on a career outside cricket.
