New Delhi: Hitting a ton in a test match is always a big achievement for every cricketer but if he creates a record with that, then it becomes more memorable.

Tom Latham, a 22 year old latest sensation in New Zealand cricket team popularly known as the “Blackcaps”, followed his maiden century in first test against Pakistan with another century in second and thus became the first Kiwi batsman in 24 years to record the feat.

Born on April 2, 1992, Thomas William Maxwell Latham aka Tom Latham is the son of the former New Zealand all-rounder Rod Latham. He is primarily a wicket-keeper batsman and of-course an aggressive opener but he has never been behind the wickets at international level.
