Kyle Mills : biography

15 March 1979 -

Kyle David Mills (born 15 March 1979 in Auckland) is a New Zealand cricketer. Kyle is right-arm pace bowler who can also score quick runs in the later stages of one day innings; in October 2009 he reached his peak position of 1st on the Reliance Mobile ICC ODI Bowling Rankings.

Having been injured in Australia in February 2007, Mills was forced to withdraw from the 2007 World Cup. After an operation on a patella tendon and a winter of rehabilitation, Mills worked his way back to fitness to take part in New Zealand's tour of South Africa in November/December 2007.

Called into the Test side, Mills was forced to withdraw from the second and final Test due to a stomach bug. Coming fresh into the three match one day series, Mills was the pick of the New Zealand bowlers in all three matches taking career best figures of 5 for 25 in the series opener.

Despite New Zealand losing the series 2-1, Mills was named Man of the Series, a fitting accolade for three effective displays of opening bowling.

Due in part of the absence of Shane Bond, who signed to play in the Indian Cricket League, and Mills' continued good form, he maintained his place in the ODI side, playing during New Zealand's 2009 ICC World Twenty20 campaign and he helped them reach the final of the 2009 ICC Champions Trophy, which they lost to Australia in South Africa., Cricket World, Retrieved 11 November 2009

In New Zealand's next ODI series after this, Mills helped his side beat Pakistan 2-1 in Abu Dhabi but was fined 20 percent of his match fee having been found guilty of excessive appealing and using obscene language. He missed the subsequent Twenty20 International series due to injury and was set to undergo surgery on a torn rotator cuff and a persistent knee injury which was to rule him out until April 2010 at the earliest.
