James Franklin Profile

In a country where patience runs low, especially when it comes to fast bowlers, it is no surprise that despite toiling for over a decade, James Franklin still continues to remain a fringe player in the Kiwi side.

He debuted for Wellington in the 1998-99 season before a hurried call-up to the ODI side in 2001 when an injury crisis robbed the Black Caps of several of their key pacemen. He had an average debut in the shorter format with two wickets in his five overs against Zimbabwe and just months later, he made a forgettable Test debut against Pakistan where he picked up just two wickets and scored naught in both innings as New Zealand lost by 299 runs. Not impressed by his abilities in the longer format, selectors continued playing him in ODIs but following a poor 2002 Sharjah Cup in which he failed to pick even a single wicket, he was sacked and returned only in 2004 as a replacement for the injured Shane Bond. During this period, the speedster worked both on his batting and his swing bowling and the efforts were visible. His fine returns for both club Glamorgan and country - including a Test ton against the South Africans - earned him a place in New Zealand's 2007 World Cup side. Over the past few years, Franklin has been in and out of the side with the axe always seeming to following him like a shadow.

However, failures haven't deterred this left-arm seamer who continues to come up with performances which keep him in the loop of New Zealand cricket.

Fast Facts

* He is only the second Kiwi player to have taken a hat-trick in Tests.
* He is New Zealand's most successful left-arm pacer ever in ODIs and is second on the Test list.
* He is also one of only two Kiwi left-arm speedsters to have taken five-wicket hauls in Tests on three occasions.
* He is also one of only five New Zealand left-arm bowlers to have taken a five-wicket haul in ODIs.
* He was New Zealand's 'Almanack Player of the Year' in 2006.
* He also holds New Zealand's record eight wicket partnership (256) with Stephen Fleming in Tests.
* He is also the only player to take a wicket of the first legitimate delivery of World Cup debut, a feat which he achieved in the 2007 opener against England.
