Known as as an extremely proficient wicketkeeper and a reliable middle order batsman, Tom Blundell is another product of the New Zealand age-group system.
Blundell was a member of the 2010 New Zealand U19 World Cup Squad along with Tom Latham, James Neesham, and Doug Bracewell and made his First-Class and List A debuts for Wellington in 2013.
He made a real splash on the international scene with his Test debut against the West Indies at his home ground the Basin Reserve in 2017 scoring 107* in a winning performance.
Earlier, in the same year he had earned his call-up to the BLACKCAPS squad in the third T20 against Bangladesh in Mount Maunganui.
Blundell became the first New Zealander to score a century at the MCG with his 121 against Australia at the Boxing Day Test. The innings will be remembered as one of the great fighting knocks of recent times.
