The player’s highest score is nine since the last time he scored 55 against England in November 2019. Since then he has played 10 T20Is and has scored only 39 runs.
Colin de Grandhomme’s recent performance has been very poor.
The New Zealand team is on a tour of Pakistan after almost 18 years. He has to play ODI and T20 series here. But a New Zealand player is not quite in color yet and his career seems to be coming to an end. The big reason for this is the recent Bangladesh tour. This player failed miserably on this tour and could not even reach 10 runs in five matches. The name of this player is Colin de Grandhomme. In the T20 series on Bangladesh tour, he was able to score 18 runs in five matches. Then in bowling he bowled only 3.4 overs and got a Kate. Talking about batting, de Grandhomme has not been able to cross the double figure in T20 for almost two years. His highest score is nine since he last scored 55 against England in November 2019. Since then he has played 10 T20Is and has scored only 39 runs.
On the recent Bangladesh tour, he could not understand the balls of spinner Nasoom Ahmed. Ahmed got him out in four out of five matches. Colin de Grandhomme faced nine balls of this bowler and could only score one run and got out four times. Many big New Zealand batsmen were not on this tour, so de Grandhomme had a big responsibility in batting but he could not live up to this trust. His bowling and fielding were also very weak on this tour. In the second T20 match, he left the catch of Liton Das when his account was not even opened. Then he scored 33 runs in 29 balls and Bangladesh won by this innings.
Grandhomme’s last year in international cricket
Colin de Grandhomme is 35 years old and the kind of form he is going through, it does not seem that he will be with the team for long. Anyway, New Zealand now have a new all-rounder in Daryl Mitchell. Mitchell’s recent performance has also been good. In such a situation, it seems that Colin de Grandhomme hardly gets a place in the playing XI on the tour of Pakistan. The New Zealand team will visit India later this year. Colin de Grandhomme’s condition remains bad in front of spinners. Then India has spinners like R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel. In such a situation, it is believed that this is his last year in international cricket.
