He has played Test and One day international cricket for his side.


He is a right-arm medium fast bowler who bats left handed in the lower order.


Background


In 2005, Bennett started his career by representing Canterbury Cricket team.


Due to noteworthy performance in domestic cricket, he got a chance to represent New Zealand in the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup which was held in Sri Lanka.


Debut


In October 2010, Bennett made his ODI debut against Bangladesh where he was New Zealand's best performing bowler by taking three wickets.


He made a promising start to his career with 20 wickets in his first 12 matches at an average of just over 20.


He also made his Test debut against India in 2010 but after bowling fifteen wicketless overs in the first innings, he was unable to bowl in the second innings as he was hampered by an injury.

He played two games in that series and picked up 3 wickets but was overlooked for the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh.

He took 4 wickets against Kenya in Chennai where he was adjudged the man of the match.


Struggling to get in the national side, Bennett got a call-up for the New Zealand ODI squad for the tri-series in Ireland due to his bucket load of wickets in the domestic cricket and a lot of the senior players being rested.


Low Points


Still trying to get a foothold in international cricket, Bennett has constantly been plagued by injuries, which is the main reason for him getting overlooked by the national selectors.


Club Career


The injury-prone Bennett is a vital cog of Canterbury's attack.
