Luke Woodcock

Nine years in to his First-Class career, Luke received his deserved call-up to the national team.

The Wellington all-rounder is a useful addition to any side, as Wellington have found out. His slow left-arm orthodox have proved difficult to get away. He can also handle a bat, averaging 35 in domestic competition and has even been known to wicket-keep occasionally. Luke is clearly extremely versatile.

Luke first represented the BLACKCAPS in Twenty20 format, being a part of the team to take on Pakistan in 2011. He wasn’t required to bowl, but proved economic with the ball and finished his four overs for just 20 runs. His performances in Twenty20 obviously did enough to impress selectors, as he was given the chance to play his first ODI not long after.

It’s early on in his international career, but Luke’s huge skill base has been enough to lock down a position in the squad for now at least. Given more opportunity, you can expect to see Luke grow in confidence and hopefully help the BLACKCAPS to a few important victories.

In 2011 Luke received his first BLACKCAPS contract.
