Born in New Zealand, this exciting wicket-keeper batsman migrated to the neighbouring country of Australia for greener pastures in his international career.
Luke Ronchi first grabbed eyeballs when he succeeded Ryan Campbell as Western Australia's first-choice wicket-keeper in 2006, after spending most of his time waiting in the wings since his debut in 2001. Thereafter, he was handed an opportunity to don the Australian colours in 2008, as an finger injury ruled Brad Haddin out of the West Indies series. It was an impressive debut series for the Kiwi, not only with the gloves but also with the bat as he brought an altogether different approach to his top-order batting. A quick-fire half century in an ODI coming off just 22 deliveries gave further proof of Ronchi's clean hitting. He had some fine seasons on the domestic front and it didn't take him long to become one of Western Australia's mainstay.
Known to have fun while batting as he once said, Ronchi quickly adapted to the shortest format of the game, Twenty20 cricket. He was signed by Mumbai for the first two seasons of the Indian T20 League in 2008. Till 2009, he was Australia's second choice keeper, after Brad Haddin. Ronchi played for Perth in the inaugural Big Bash season in 2011-12. The following year, he returned to New Zealand with an intention to represent his country, which led to him signing up for Wellington. In 2013, he made his debut for New Zealand in the ODI series in England and became the first ever to play for Australia and New Zealand at the international arena.
