Tim Southee

Tim Southee, a New Zealand pacer, has grown into one of the best swing bowlers around the world. He made his Test debut in 2008 with only one T20I cap and in his debut Test, he picked up 5 wickets for 55 runs and then smashed 77 off 40 balls in the second innings with nine sixes. He has been New Zealand's top bowler with Trent Boult with both sharing the new ball. In the Indian Premier League, Southee first picked up a contract with Chennai Super Kings in 2011 but then did not play the 2012 and 2013 season. In 2014, Southee was picked by Rajasthan Royals. He played for them in one more season before moving to Mumbai Indians for season 2016 and 2017. Southee is one of the seven New Zealand cricketers to be part of the IPL 2018. He was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore this year and will turn up for them.
