T.G. Southee


v EnglandBack to boards

Tim Southee became just the fifth New Zealander to appear on the bowling Honours Boards for a five-wicket haul, when he took six wickets for 50 runs in the 2013 Test v England.

The all-rounder followed in the footsteps of Sir Richard Hadlee - who appears three times - Dion Nash, Daniel Vettori and Chris Cairns, with a superb spell of bowling in the second innings after already taking four wickets in the first for the Black Caps.

Southee was on top-form at Lord’s, getting the wickets of Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Matt Prior and Steven Finn for the second time during the match while also claiming the wicket of Graeme Swann, which sealed his five-wicket haul.

Ian Bell was the next to depart through Southee’s bowling which gave the New Zealander his tenth wicket in the match and thus, another spot on the Honours Boards.

Despite Southee’s efforts with the ball, New Zealand’s dismal total of 68 all out in their second innings meant England secured victory by 170 runs at the end of the Test.
