Profile

Like Brendon McCullum, Tom Latham too. is a swash-buckling wicket-keeper batsman who opens the innings. Making his first-class debut back in 2010 for Canterbury, he first came into prominence when he struck a magnificent 130 off 119 balls against Wellington in 2012 in a List A game. It prompted the selectors to romp in this talented lad for the limited-over series against Zimbabwe at home, where he made his ODI debut. Although Latham did not taste any major success in that series, he toured the sub-continent with the New Zealand A team playing List A games against India A and Sri Lanka A in the later part of 2013. His stand-out innings of 86 against Sri Lanka in November in the second ODI saw his team chase a huge total in a rain-affected game. That performance also earned him the Man of the Match award and showed the world that he was ready for the hard grind of international cricket.
