A lanky right-arm fast bowler, Adam Milne made a dream first-class debut as an 18-year-old in the 2009-10 season, taking a wicket with his second ball and finishing with 4 for 52 against Canterbury. The call-up only came because Michael Mason was called up to the New Zealand team due to Jacob Oram's injury. Milne was included in Central District's Twenty20 squad for the Champions League 2010 even though he didn't play a single game for them in the domestic HRV Cup. He played two matches in the tournament and impressed with his pace.
Milne was included in New Zealand squad for their Twenty20 series against Pakistan in December 2010. He was taken for runs in that series, and injuries disrupted his first-class career, before he returned to the headlines, being picked in New Zealand squad for the 2012 World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka.
A fast bowler with explosive pace, Adam Milne made his One-Day International debut for New Zealand in November 2012 when he was named for a clash with Pakistan. He took 0-21 on debut and followed that performance with 1-17 in the following match. Milne’s next opportunity for the Black Caps came in November 2013 against Bangladesh.
In a sign which says the selectors have expectations of the paceman, he was given his first New Zealand contract in July 2014. He returned for New Zealand A in November 2014, taking 3-24 in a one-day match against United Arab Emirates and was subsequently recalled to the Black Caps ODI team where he played four ODIs against Pakistan in December
