Left-handed Kiwi opener Colin Munro has been a revelation in the T20I cricket and came into the spotlight for scoring the second fastest T20I fifty in just 14 balls against Sri Lanka. Since then he has made a name for himself for becoming the first batsman to score three centuries in the T20I history, all of which came in a period of just 12 months.

Colin Munro has scored T20I hundreds against Bangladesh, India and West Indies and has been noted as one of the most destructive openers in the format. He has scored 1173 runs in 45 T20I matches for New Zealand with a strike rate of 163.59. Munro also played for Mumbai Indians, Delhi Daredevils, and Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League as well.

His ability to wrestle the advantage from the opposition in adverse conditions has set him apart from the rest of the pack, as he really goes after the fast bowlers and spinners with equal gusto and takes the attack head-on.
