A man who has all the ingredients of a quality pace bowler, Chris Martin uses his strength and height to a good effect, hitting the deck hard and deriving some steep bounce. Known more for his fragility with the bat, this speedster from Christchurch has been the crux of the Kiwi pace attack for a substantial period of time. Martin got his first taste of international cricket in the year 2000 in a Test match against South Africa. His talent was unravelled immediately as he struck three lusty blows picking up the wickets of Kirsten, McKenzie and Pollock. He picked up his first 5-wicket haul against Zimbabwe in a Test at Wellington in 2000. A series of injuries kept Bond out of the side and elevated Martin as the No.1 choice for the Kiwi pace department. Martin did not waste this chance and stepped into Bond’s boots with stern authority, grabbing 11 wickets at Auckland in a Test against South Africa in 2004.
