Profile

‘Meteoric’ is the word which aptly sums Adam Milne’s rise to the national side. At 17, the speedster was busy opening the bowling for his school team before earning an unexpected call-up from the Central Districts as Michael Mason’s replacement, who in turn had been called up for national duty for the Kiwis.

The Palmerston North-born player impressed on his first-class debut in 2010 against Canterbury, scalping his maiden wicket in only his second ball and finished off the innings with figures of 4-52. His initial performances amazed his club who decided to look beyond his inexperience and included him for the 2010 Champions League T20 held in South Africa. His performances in the tournament were average but Central Districts offered him a contract and in late 2010, in a bolter, he was also named in New Zealand’s squad for the T20 series against Pakistan, where he made his debut.

A novice on the international stage, Milne has been clocked around the 145 kph mark in the past and has a reputation of hurrying up batsman with his sudden burst of pace. But to survive in international cricket over a long period, the speedster will continuously need to adapt his game to suit different pitches and conditions.
