Corey Anderson is a hard-hitting left hander, who can also bowl medium pace, he became the youngest New Zealander to get a contract at 16. Right from a young age, people expected big things from the all-rounder. He played two Under-19 World Cups, one in 2008 and the other, two years later.

He made his First-Class debut in 2007 and had to wait for a while before getting his maiden hundred in 2012. It was a big one as well, a 167 against Otago. That innings got him the recognition and a place in the T20I squad against South Africa. Anderson, had a forgettable start to his international career and had to wait for a year to make his Test debut against Bangladesh in Chittagong.

In only his second Test, he scored a brilliant stroke-filled hundred which was not enough to win the Test as Bangladesh went on to draw it. Anderson announced himself on the world stage when he broke Shahid Afridi’s record for the fastest hundred in ODIs against West Indies at Queenstown, he got to the landmark in 36 balls. The knock included six fours and 14 sixes, and the record was broken after 17 years. However, South African batsman AB de Villiers then bettered Anderson’s effort in the game against the West Indies at Wanderers.

Anderson, continued his superb form and produced some scintillating knocks against the touring Indians. The recognition he got from those two series earned him an IPL contract with Mumbai Indians in the 2014 auction. He was bought for 4.5 crores.

Anderson made an impression in the World T20 2014 in Bangladesh as well, where he contributed with the ball and in the field, but didn’t get much of an opportunity with the bat. He also injured his finger while fielding in the final league match against Sri Lanka, which did not allow him to bat and New Zealand lost that game.

In IPL 7, Anderson, grabbed the headlines with his stunning display with the bat. With Mumbai needing to chase 190 in 14.3 overs to progress to the last four, Anderson, who was promoted to No. 3 in the batting order, scored a sensational 44-ball 95 to help them seal the game. He also played the entire Test series against Pakistan in the UAE late in 2014, where he hit Ahmed Shehzad on the head with a bouncer, which resulted in a fractured skull. Anderson has been a regular member of the New Zealand limited overs squads and was also named in the squad for the 2015 World Cup.

Anderson had a decent 2015 World Cup. He scored only 231 runs with the bat, which included 2 fifties but he was quite effective with the ball, picking up 14 wickets.
He suffered a finger injury during IPL 2015 that has recurred on a couple of occasions since then, and as a result he has been in and out of the team.

In 2018, Anderson found a new lease of life to resurrect his International career when he was picked by the IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore as a replacement for the injured Australian pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile. But the Kiwi all-rounder had a season to forget. In 3 matches that he played, Anderson could manage just 17 runs and bagged only 2 wickets conceding 115 runs in 8.4 overs he bowled. In one particular instance, bestowed the duty to defend 16 from the final over against Chennai Super Kings, MS Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo carted Anderson all over the park to seal a memorable victory for CSK. Following the loss, the New Zealander was dropped by RCB for the remaining matches.

To erase off IPL wounds, Corey has moved to the UK where he is currently playing the T20 blast competition for Somerset.
