Pre-match chat: Rookie bowler Blair Tickner back on home track

Blackcaps rookie Blair Tickner is turning heads during the current T20 series against England - and not just for his bowling.

The Central Districts pace bowler was a hero of New Zealand's 14-run win at Nelson on Tuesday, returning figures of 2/25 in just his second international outing, as the home side took a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.

But Tickner is attracting just as much attention for his distinctive hairstyle that bears an uncanny resemblance to a famous TV villain.

"I've been told I look like Arthur off Peaky Blinders," he laughs. "I don't mind that.

"I'm gowing out the mo' at the moment, so maybe I'll get a cheesecutter to warm up for the next game and I'll be right."

Peaky Blinders portrays a ruthless gang from early-1900s Birmingham and Arthur Shelby is the unhinged ex-military, right-hand man to brother and gang leader Tommy Shelby.

Tickner, 26, debuted for the New Zealand T20 team against India in January and hopes to take the field in his hometown of Napier in the fourth match against England on Friday.

"I love playing here for the Stags, and it would be pretty awesome to play in front of friends and family," he says. "I love McLean Park, so very excited."

Tickner operates the 13th Stag cafe at the Hastings Regional Sports Park.
