Tom Latham is one of the youngest members of the BLACKCAPS, having made his debut in 2012 at the age of just 19.
An aggressive right-hand batsman, Latham holds numerous similarities to his father Rod Latham who also played for New Zealand.
Tom first came on to the scene when he was selected to take part in the Under 19 World Cup in 2010 as the team’s wicketkeeper. Later that year he continued to make waves by making his debut for the Canterbury Wizards.
After just a handful of performances Latham had shown he had huge potential, particularly in the shorter formats of the game. In January 2012 he scored his maiden century in the Ford Trophy.
This was followed up with a call-up to the BLACKCAPS ODI squad to play against Zimbabwe. Latham made a solid start to his international career and has had many commentators around New Zealand label him as an extraordinary talent for the future.
At just 21 years of age, Latham has a long career in front of him and will be one to watch out for no doubt - he could be a superstar in the making.
