“Singing the anthem with the New Zealand uniform on before playing in what was a convincing win over the West Indies was definitely an experience I will never forget.”
Even though Lincoln will host 17 games of the tournament, including the Plate final on Sunday, Connor has not had the chance to play at “home”, with New Zealand playing at Hagley Oval when in Christchurch.

“I grew my passion for cricket really from just hitting a ball around in the backyard with dad and my mates at school. Playing it with my mates on a Saturday not having to worry about anything else but the game was a thing I loved.
“Some of my goals inside and outside of cricket are to finish my degree but also to keep improving my cricket in the hope that one day I will be able to play for Canterbury and maybe even for New Zealand at the highest level.
“I would also love to travel the world with my degree and experience what overseas has to offer.”
