Bio

Born in South Africa, left-arm seamer Neil Wagner made his first class debut for Northerns in 2005-06, toured Zimbabwe and Bangladesh with a South African national academy side in 2006-07.

He was named 12th man in two Tests for the Proteas, before looking elsewhere for opportunities, making a wise decision to look to New Zealand.

Known for his ability to swing the ball, Wagner impressed at domestic level before qualifying to play for his adopted nation.

Since making his Test debut in 2012, he has played 16 matches and taken 58 wickets.
