New Zealand has no dearth of quality all-rounders and Colin Munro is one of those talented blokes. Born in Durban, Munro represents Auckland at domestic level and was also a part of the U19 team of the 2006 World Cup in Sri Lanka.
IPL through the years

Colin Munro has made quite a name for himself in this format. He is the second-ranked batsman in T20Is and has performed excellently across the globe in various T20 leagues. However, in IPL Munro hasn't been able to stamp his authority so far. But he is at the peak of his power currently and this might be the season when Munro bring his A game to the fore and take the Indian Premier League by storm.

World Cup 2019 - What to expect

Colin Munro's recent ODI form hasn't been that great as the left-hander has struggled to notch up the big scores in 2019. His last valuable knock in the 50-over format came against Sri Lanka in January 2019 but since then Munro has failed to fire. However, with him and Guptill at the top, New Zealand have a destructive opening pair. Even if one of them clicks, New Zealand might get the impetus at the top. Guptill's record in World Cups is much better than his overall record in ODIs, hence the Kiwis would rely on him to give them those quick and steady starts. If Munro is able to do the same as well, it'll be an icing on the cake for the Blackcaps.

NZ have got a reliable middle-order and the openers are destructive too, it's just that their aggressive batsmen need to be a bit more consistent. In the shortest format, the left-hander is one of the mainstays for New Zealand, but he needs to deliver in the 50-over format as well. This being his first World Cup ever, it's a good chance for Colin to score his maiden century in ODIs. Just that he needs to work on his temperament and not get carried away if he gets off to a good start. New Zealand have given him enough opportunities and now is the time for him to step up and make it large.
