Iain McPeake (27) is one of New Zealand cricket's leading domestic quicks. He starred for the Wellington Firebirds last summer, taking 35 wickets at 19.34, including three 5 wicket bags and his maiden first-class 10-wicket match haul (5-30 and 5-21 v Canterbury). 

The tall, hit-the-deck seamer has, over the past three years, cemented his spot in Wellington’s red ball bowling attack and has captured 74 wickets at 29.02 in 23 Plunket Shield matches. 

McPeake forms part of a formidable Wellington attack, to include former Blackcaps Hamish Bennett and Jeetan Patel. Courtesy of his exploits in recent years, McPeake has gained selection for New Zealand XI sides in 2014 and 2016. He has also played 10 Ford Trophy (one-day) and 4 Super Smash T20 games for the Firebirds.

At Premier club level for Hutt Districts Cricket Club, McPeake has taken over 200 wickets at 14 since the 2009/10 season and, whilst known for his seam-up, has produced several notable innings with the bat amongst 600 plus runs (highest score of 61*). The experienced quick is also no stranger to Northern shores, having seasons for St Just (2013 - Cornwall Premier League) and Sleaford (2018 - Lincolnshire ECB Premier League). 

After his strong showing last summer, in both first-class (35 wickets at 19.34) and league cricket (44 wickets at 19.11), the towering quick is open to a UK return in 2019. Clearly, given his domestic performances, he represents a high-class recruit for any club seeking a quality seamer. He is seeking a quality club, will travel with his partner and benefits from a UK Ancestry Visa, therefore is open to all clubs, even ones without a Sponsors Licence.
