profile

With all kinds of swing in his repertoire, Tim Southee has shown significant promise since his breakthrough into the national frame of New Zealand and has already taken over the mantle of New Zealand's premier bowler at a very young age.

The speedster first grabbed eyeballs in the 2007-08 season when he picked up 33 first-class wickets at an average of below 24. His performances saw him become one of the youngest Kiwi players to debut internationally at 19. Southee's exploits in the 2008 Under-19 WC assured his inclusion in New Zealand's Test side. Entering the big stage, the teenager showed very few nerves as he ripped through England's top order in the first innings on debut, grabbing a five-wicket haul and also proved his value with the bat, smashing 77 off just 40 balls in the second innings. In the same year, he also made his ODI debut scalping, 16 wickets in his initial six games.

In 2012, Southee came up with a stunning performance in a Test in Bangalore where he won himself figures of 7/64 in India's first innings, making the new and the old ball swing at will. A wonderful bowler to have at the death with his pinpoint yorkers, Southee is still in the process of mastering the tricks of the trade. However, given his abundant talent, one can be rest assured that in Tim Southee, the world can watch out for a fast-bowling icon in the making.

2013 was a pretty consistent year for Southee, both in ODIs as well as Test matches. He will be part of the Indian T20 League and will don the Rajasthan jersey. It will be interesting to see how well does he handle the pressure of the T20 game, as he will go in the league with a high reputation.
