New Zealand v Australia - 3rd ODI
New Zealand have a rich history of producing quality bowlers

Over the years, New Zealand have earned a reputation in cricketing circles for their ability to dig up quality fast bowlers. While injury has been a major concern for a large majority of their fast bowlers, they have still managed to unearth enough quality to stake their claims as one of the best countries for fast bowlers.

Right from the early years of cricket, New Zealand has been famous for producing some of the quickest wickets in World cricket. These kind of wickets have also gone a long way in building up budding fast bowlers in the country. But it has hampered the development of spinners although they do boast of one of the best left-arm spinners ever to play cricket.

Here we compile a list of New Zealand's top 10 bowlers of all-time. Bear in mind that statistics aren't the only criteria used to determine this list. Here you go!

#10 Danny Morrison

A portrait of Danny Morrison

A swing bowler with immense talent, Morrison made his name courtesy his unplayable outswingers. A round-armish action with a smooth follow through, Morrison wasn't extremely pacy but relied on consistency in line and length combined with swing in the air, available in plenty in New Zealand, to earn his wickets.

He is one among the only two Kiwi bowlers to achieve a hat-trick in ODIs. The feat unfolded in 1994 against India. Ever smiling and very pleasant, Morrison earned quite a fan following for his quirky comments and easy going personality. Sure enough, all these translated into a career in the press box post his retirement.
