In 2021 the New Zealand cricket team won the inaugural ICC World Test Championship. Thirteen years before, a 19-year-old Tim Southee had played his first Test match for his country, and before long he would be joined by Trent Boult and Neil Wagner. One hailing from a farm in Northland, one who grew up in a small eastern Bay of Plenty beachside town, and one from half a world away in South Africa, the three quick bowlers became an integral part of the most successful era in New Zealand’s cricket history. United by their passion for the game, their thirst for bowling and their pride in wearing the Black Cap, they had made a combined 206 Test appearances and claimed between them 835 Test wickets by the time they brought home the World Test Championship Mace.
The Three Quicks is the story of how three of New Zealand’s very best fast bowlers came together to play such a central role in their country’s cricketing saga over more than a decade. From a nail-biting win over Australia at Hobart in 2011 to the satisfaction of dismissing England for 58 at Eden Park six summers later, to the excitement of two 50-over ICC World Cup finals, a Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and then the ultimate victory over India to put New Zealand at the pinnacle of the cricketing world, Tim Southee, Trent Boult and Neil Wagner have never been far from the heart of their team’s absorbing and exhilarating journey.
