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.
He was part of the New Zealand U-19 World Cup squad in 2010 alongside Tom Latham, James Neesham, and Doug Bracewell. He made his first-class and List A debuts for Wellington in 2013. After an inconsistent first three seasons in domestic cricket, Blundell had a breakthrough season in 2015-16 in which he made 1073 runs in 28 matches across all formats. He followed it with 537 runs in 17 matches in the 2016-17 season. His tally of 243 runs in nine innings was the highest by a wicketkeeper-batsman in the Super Smash in 2016-17.
