Bio

Craig’s early career was interrupted by chronic fatigue syndrome, before the off-spinner was included in the squad for the Black Caps’ Test tour of NZ in 2014 after excellent form for Otago in domestic cricket.

He took 8-188 on debut and he became the third Black Cap to win a player of the match award in his first Test match.

Craig topped that just  months later against Pakistan in the UAE, taking 10-2013 and took 31 wickets from his first eight Test matches.
