Impressive with his accurate line and length, Daryl Tuffey is a first-over specialist! He has the nag to take a wicket in the very first over the game.

Nicknamed 'Hightower', Tuffey gets a lot of bounce owing to his height and seaming pace. He can also be termed as the English-style seamer.

His career-best figures came in against England in 2001-02, which helped his team to tie the three-Test series.

The 26-year-old's best moment came against England in 2002 when he took six for 54 in the third Test to help New Zealand to victory.

Apart from performing in the Test arena he has proved as a useful member in the One-Day Internationals, having taken  more than 80 wickets in his career so far.
