Tim Southee has progressed far in the game of international cricket, going from a master of swing and seam bowling to the job of New Zealand captain. He is not the first bowler in cricket history to have played this position; other bowlers who led their teams were Wasim Akram, Imran Khan, Courtney Walsh, and Waqar Younis.
In Kane Williamson’s absence, he periodically led the New Zealand squad in T20I matches, and this thing certainly significantly influenced Southee’s growth as a team leader. As a result, when Kane Williamson opted to step down as Test Captain, he naturally climbed to the position of command for New Zealand and was named as Captain.
Most fast bowlers in cricket are considered very aggressive, but Tim Southee is very calm and relaxed, and this ability helps him lead his team in a very good manner.
We’ll now take a look at Tim Southee’s T20I numbers, where he played most of his part as his team’s Captain.
