This 22-year-old lanky right-arm fast bowler from New Zealand scripted the perfect first-class debut for himself at 18 when he picked up a wicket with his second ball in the 2009-10 season. He finished with 4/52 – a dream debut for a young player.

 

Milne's maiden call up to the Black Caps came in the shortest format of the game when he was merely 18 and walked out to face Pakistan in December 2010. He was even named in New Zealand's 30-man probable squad for the 2011 World Cup.

 

He hit the headlines again when he was included in the Kiwi squad for the Word Twenty20 in 2012, the same year that he made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka and cemented a place in the national team.

 

His all out pace meant Milne was used sparingly and a breakout series finally came against Pakistan at the end of 2014. His ability to consistently ball at blazing speeds of 145-150 kmph made sure that the who's who of the cricketing world were talking about him. The selectors showed faith in him by naming him in New Zealand's squad for the 2015 World Cup.

 

This fiery young bowler clocked his fastest delivery at 153.2 kmph. He looks like a good option for RCB to bank on when wickets are needed upfront. His pace will come handy in such a case and he'll complement Mitchell Starc perfectly in sharing the new ball. A razor-sharp delivery that shapes back into the right-hander can provide RCB many a breakthrough this season.
