Colin de Grandhomme Biography


A heavy hitter and a broad-shouldered batsman, Colin de Grandhomme is an international cricketer who plays for New Zealand.


He plays the role of a right-handed batsman and a disciplined right-arm medium-pace bowler for the team.


The skilled all-rounder left his homeland Zimbabwe for New Zealand in 2006. He plays all formats of the game and has been an asset to the team ever since his debut.


Background


Colin started his career by playing for Manicaland in Zimbabwe. He even represented Zimbabwe A and the Under-23 team.


In 2006, when he moved to Auckland, he started playing for Auckland Aces in the state championship.


He had a wonderful 2008-09 season for the side and helped the side win the state championship.


He went on to deserve a place in the New Zealand Emerging Players in 2009 and played in the quadrangular series held in Australia.


Debut


He played in the Kiwi colours for the first time in the T20 format against his home country Zimbabwe on February 11, 2012.


He didn’t get to bowl in the game and though he came out to bat... before he could face a delivery, the match was over.


A month later, he made his ODI debut against South Africa and scored a decent 36 off 36 deliveries.


He got to bowl just one over which went for 9 runs.


After establishing himself in the shorter formats, he made his Test debut recently against Pakistan in November 2016.


He scored 29 runs in the only innings that he got to bat in and picked up 7 wickets, which included a marvelous 6-fer in the first innings.


Rise to Glory


He made an impact as a hard hitter very early in his career. Also, he had shown glimpses of his skills in the longer formats.


Since 2011, he has scored more than 600 runs in the domestic season six times.


He scored his maiden Test century against West Indies on 2 December 2017 in just 71 balls.


It was the second-fastest Test century by a New Zealand batsman ever.


Low Points


It’s very early in his career to call any part of it a bad patch, but he hasn’t been able to make a permanent place for himself in the Test side.


Club Career


He has played for several clubs so far in his career. In 2017, he joined Warwickshire and had a good season. He was a major part of the team’s success in the Natwest T20. He scored a 38 not out in the quarterfinals which helped the team a lot.


Colin's Record in Numbers


He broke a 65-year old record for the best bowling figures for a New Zealand debutant when he picked up 6 wickets for just 41 runs against Pakistan in a Test Match.


He went on to become the fourth player in the history of New Zealand cricket to earn the Man of the Match award for this performance on Test debut.


He also holds the record of the second-fastest Test century by a New Zealand batsman.
