Hamish Duncan Rutherford (born 27 April 1989) is a New Zealand cricketer who plays first-class cricket for Otago and represents New Zealand in international cricket. A left-handed batsman, occasional left-arm spin bowler and Twenty20 specialist, Rutherford is the son of former New Zealand Test captain Ken Rutherford and nephew of Ian Rutherford.[1]

Domestic career

It has been announced that Rutherford will be playing for Auckland in the 2015-16. He signed a contract extension with Derbyshire in 2015 for the 2016 Season.[2]

He was the leading run-scorer in the 2017–18 Plunket Shield season for Otago, with 577 runs in ten matches.[3] In June 2018, he was awarded a contract with Otago for the 2018–19 season.[4]

International career

He scored a century (171) on his Test match debut against England, which is the seventh-highest score on debut.[5][6] It is also second on the list for a left-handed debutant and a test opener on debut, in both cases behind Jacques Rudolph.[7]
