Tim Southee

Tim Southee was player of the tournament at the Under 19 Cricket World Cup in 2008, and made his BLACKCAPS debut in a T20 against England a few months later.

He was handed a Test debut at the age of 19 against England in Napier, taking 5 for 55 before smashing 77 off 40 balls in the second innings with nine sixes.

Since then he has progressed into one of the best bowlers in world cricket, across all three forms of the game, going on to form one of the world's best new-ball partnerships with Trent Boult and establishing himself as one of the most successful new Zealand players in the modern era.

Southee’s out swing delivery is world renowned and combined with his height and pace, he’s a threat in all conditions.
 
Southee has appeared at x World Cups, including the 2015 and 2019 ODI World Cups and the 2021 T20 World Cup where the BLACKCAPS reached the finals.

He played a key role in the BLACKCAPS’ World Test Championship triumph, taking 56 wickets throughout the campaign and claiming 4-48 in the second innings of the final as the BLACKCAPS defeated India at the Rose Bowl.

Now a veteran in the BLACKCAPS environment, Southee is New Zealand’s second all-time leading Test wicket-taker, behind the great Sir Richard Hadlee, and the world’s all-time leading T20 international wicket-taker.

In December 2022, he was named Test captain ahead of the home Test series against England taking over from Kane Williamson.

Southee has plied his trade in various leagues around the world, including for multiple teams in the IPL and Essex in the English County Championship.

Born and bred in Whangarei, Northland, Southee plays his domestic cricket for Northern Districts.
