Player Biography

Explosive New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham signed for Kent Spitfires for the 2017 NatWest T20 Blast.

The 26-year-old joined Black Caps paceman Adam Milne in the Spitfires squad.

The left-hander has represented his country 68 times across all three formats and played in the Caribbean and Indian Premier League T20 tournaments.

He became the first New Zealander to score centuries in his first two Test matches: 137* against India and 107 versus West Indies in 2014.

At the time of his signing, the Auckland-born seamer had taken 65 wickets in T20 cricket at a strike rate of 17 and an economy rate of less than 8 in internationals.
