Matt Henry Facts

  1. Matt had made his senior international debut in an ODI match in January 2014, against India. He had made an immediate impact by picking up 4 wickets for just 38 runs in 10 overs as New Zealand went on to win the match by 87 runs and the 5-match home bilateral series by a margin of 4-0.
  2. He was not initially a part of New Zealand’s squad at the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup but was included after fellow pace bowler Adam Milne got injured just before New Zealand’s semi-final match against South Africa.
  3. He went on to play both the semi-final and the final matches of the tournament and was his team’s best bowler in the final match against Australia. His figures of 2/46 in 9.1 overs, though, were not enough to prevent Australia from winning the title for a record-extending 5th time.
  4. At the subsequent edition of the tournament, in 2019, he was a key cog in New Zealand’s pace bowling battery that had carried them to a second successive appearance in the tournament’s final. He had bagged 14 wickets in the tournament and was New Zealand’s best bowler in their group stage match against Bangladesh (4/47 in 9.2 overs) and their semi-final match against India (3/37 in 10 overs). For his performance in the semi-final, he had been named the ‘Player of the Match’.
  5. In October 2016, in a bilateral away ODI match against India, he was involved in an 84-run partnership for the 9th wicket with James Neesham. As of March 2022, this was still New Zealand’s highest partnership for the 9th wicket in ODI cricket. This partnership had beaten the previous New Zealand record by just 1 run which had been created in March 2009 when Kyle Mills and Tim Southee had stitched together an 83-run partnership in a bilateral home ODI match, also against India.
