Due to his bustling pace, Henry has been compared to the fast-bowling legend Shane Bond.


Background

He picked up six wickets in his test debut a year later against England, which ended up in a losing cause. Since then, Henry has been a regular in the squad, but not the playing XI as Trent Boult and Tim Southee are the first-choice bowlers.


Rise to Glory


Henry was called up as a replacement to Adam Milne for the big final of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup. He displayed serious pace and picked two early wickets, even though they ended up in a losing cause.


His best bowling figures till date in ODIs is 5/30 against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi in December 2014. Overall, he has 95 international wickets to his name.


Club Career
