New Zealand’s veteran pacer Tim Southee rings his 31st birthday on Wednesday (December 11, 2019). The right-arm bowler has proved his mettle in all the formats of the game and is regarded as one of the best bowlers to have played for the Black Caps. Southee is not someone who can set the speed gun on fire but his ability to extract swing from the pitch and buckets of variations makes him a force to reckon with. Along with capabilities with the ball, the fast bowler is also a handy batsman lower down the order and has also handled the reins of the side in several matches.
