An explosive middle order batsman who has a knack of breaking partnerships with his left-arm medium pace bowling, Corey 'Coza' Anderson is a batting all-rounder from New Zealand. Anderson first shot to fame on New Years Day in 2014 when he smashed a 36 ball hundred against West Indies, the fastest in ODIs at the time. That record was broken a year later by AB de Villiers against the same opposition as he got to his ton in just 31 balls. In 2007, Anderson was offered a full-time contract by New Zealand cricket, thus becoming the youngest New Zealand cricketer to get a first class contract. As he showcased some exquisite form with both bat and ball early on, he bagged a VIVO IPL contract with MI in 2014 and played some crucial knocks with the bat for them. One of those was a memorable 95 off 44 balls against RR to help them qualify for the play-offs in 2014. In 2006, he along with fellow Kiwi and RCB teammate Tim Southee, were joint players of the Gillete Cup. As much as his power-hitting and crafty bowling are assets in his game, he can hear only 5 % from his left ear but he hasn't let that affect his cricket, especially in the noisy Indian stadiums. He had a wonderful 2015 ICC World Cup at home, scoring 231 runs and finishing with 14 wickets. He was unsold in the VIVO IPL 2018 auction but was brought in by the Bold before the tournament commenced as a replacement for the injured Nathan Coulter-Nile.
