Profile

Born in Durban, Colin Munro is an impressive batting all-rounder. He represents Auckland in domestic cricket and was also a part of the New Zealand squad for the 2006 ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in Sri Lanka. Despite having an average debut season, Munro went on to become an effective Twenty20 cricketer with his all-round abilities.

After breaking into Auckland's T20 side in 2010-11, the hard hitting batsman would have wished for a better beginning. A couple of ducks in his first two games wasn't exactly the kind of start he needed, but a fine fifty followed and boosted his chances. Munro played a huge role in Auckland's HRV Cup triumph that season. Later that year, he was part of Auckland Aces in the Champions League T20 held in India. In 2012, he was called-up to the T20I squad for New Zealand's series against South Africa.

Scoring a half century in just his second ODI against South Africa, Munro was always known as a devastating middle order batsman in domestic circles. He received a Test cap on the same tour but couldn't make the most of the opportunity, being dismissed for a golden duck in the first innings and contributing with just 15 during New Zealand's innings defeat. Munro managed to match the reputation he had built for himself during New Zealand's rather forgettable tour of Bangladesh, later that year with an 85 in the final ODI and a match-winning whirlwind 73 off just 39 balls in New Zealand's only victory on the tour in the one-off T20I.
