The outswinger is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Tim Southee. That has been the delivery which has caused most damage from him, although over the years, he has developed a vast repertoire of deliveries. Apart from a fine new-ball bowler, he has developed into a fine old-ball bowler too with the pace variations and reverse swing being his ally. Apart from being a very wily bowler, Southee has also shown on quite a few occasions that he can hit the long ball. Safe to say he has been one of the gems to have come out of New Zealand in this millennium.
IPL through the years

The New Zealand pacer had a start-stop beginning to his IPL career. He was picked for the 2011 season by Chennai Super Kings and though he won them their first game by defending 6 off the final over, Southee played only a couple more after that as Doug Bollinger replaced him. The championship winning team did not retain him and he was left in the wilderness for two years.

Rajasthan Royals bought him back to the league in 2014 for INR 1.2 crore. He didn't play much because of Royals' strong foreign recruits. The same happened in 2015 and once Rajasthan were terminated, Southee moved to Mumbai Indians for the next two years.

In the first season with Mumbai, Southee played 11 games and returned with 9 scalps for an average of 36. The second year he was overlooked for the likes Mitchell McClenaghan and Mitchell Johnson. In 2018, Royal Challengers Bangalore entered the fray for the Kiwi and picked him for his base price of 1 crore. He went on to become the main death bowler for RCB and that in return made them retain him.

World Cup - Through the years

Most of New Zealand's key achievements after 2000 have seen a Southee stamp on it somewhere. Semifinal finish in the 2011 World Cup had him playing a major role as he scalped 18 wickets at an excellent average of 17.33 - ample proof of his ability to adapt to sub-continental conditions. He was also on song during the 2015 World Cup where New Zealand made their first ever appearance in a final. His career best spell of 7/33 came in World Cup 2015 where Southee destroyed England's batting line-up with his lethal spell with the new ball. He was unplayable and it was due to his bowling spell that England were wrapped up for a paltry score of 123 at Wellington.

In World Cup 2019, his partnership with Trent Boult will be the one to watch out for. If the two speedsters manage to take crucial wickets in the Powerplay, New Zealand have a good chance to make it to the knock-outs. They're always considered as the dark horses in ICC events and if the Kiwis want to put up a good show in the showpiece event in England, Tim Southee will have to put his best foot forward.

Info: Southee has won two IPLs - CSK in 2011 and MI in 2017 without being part of the final XI.
