Nick Greenwood is an exciting batting prospect playing for the Wellington Firebirds, alongside Blackcaps including Finn Allen, Hamish Bennett, Tom Blundell, and Rachin Ravindra.

Greenwood broke into the Firebirds set-up earlier this summer following his run-filled 2020/21 season for both Wellington A (363 runs at 40.33) and Taita District Cricket Club (898 runs at 40.82).

The run machine, who also bowls useful off-spin, had previously represented Wellington at both Under-17 (2014/15-16/17), and Under-19 (2017/18-18/19), skippering the side in the latter. He would then go on to captain the New Zealand Under-19 Emerging Players in 2019.

He made his Wellington A debut in November 2018, before heading to the UK for a summers club cricket (Bowden in Cheshire) where he also churned runs for Lancashire 2nd XI.

Following his maiden English club stint, the batter made his debut for his country-of-birth, Jersey, in the ICC World Cup Qualifiers in the UAE (September 2019). A few months later, he jetted off to Oman to play in the Cricket World Cup Challenge League. Greenwood would go on to make his List A debut, for Jersey against Uganda, on 2 December 2019. Four days later, he would crack a match-winning century (102) against Italy.

Greenwood returned to New Zealand to play the second half of the Premier club season, hitting 311 runs at 51.83 in the Two-Day Competition. He would also feature in the National Provincial A Quad Series. However, it was his exploits during his 2020/21 season that culminated with Firebirds selection. The Taita star would go on to win the club's MVP, and courtesy of his run spree to include a hundred, he would take out the Wellington A Player of the Year award.

The dual Passport holder is quite the prospect who is now looking to feature for Wellington across all formats this summer, in a view to cementing his spot. Thereafter, he has targeted a UK return, ideally to play in Surrey for the 2022 season.
