Bio

 He is popularly known as the 'PhanTom' for his funny inability with the bat. Chris Martin is a legend on YouTube because he releases his batting skills that have been largely absent. With the ball though, he is an evergreen trier and is one of eleven New Zealand cricketers to have taken 100 test wickets.

 

 Martin depends more on aid from the pitch and is a seam bowler who can bowl long spells. Quite unlikely for a bowler who seems extremely miserly, he was never considered as a serious contender to play ODIs and has played only 20 ODIs till date. He must owe a lot to his batting style that has provided ample humor to the cricket watchers than his metronomic bowling. He has more number of ducks than any other New Zealand cricketer and never a record of notching up a double figure score till his 36th test match.

 

 Chris Martin's humorous batting skills have prompted him to feature in a video called 'Learn to bat like Chris Martin' - a clip which is a rage on YouTube. He was signed up for a bat deal with Aerosport and proudly displays the sponsor's logo when he strides out to the crease. It is said that it was too awkward for Martin to bring batting gear to practice so he only bowled. Martin has the rather dubious honor of belonging to a select group of cricketers whose number of wickets taken exceeds runs scored; and perhaps the only man in the history of cricket to have this feat in all forms of the game.
