A lanky right-arm medium-fast bowler, Adam Milne made a dream first-class debut as an 18-year-old in the 2009-10 season, taking a wicket with his second ball and finishing with 4 for 52 against Canterbury. The call-up only came because Michael Mason was called up to the New Zealand team due to Jacob Oram's injury. Milne was included in Central District's Twenty20 squad for the Champions League 2010 even though he didn't play a single game for them in the domestic HRV Cup. He played two matches in the tournament and impressed with his pace. Milne was included in New Zealand's squad for their Twenty20 series against Pakistan in December 2010. He was taken for runs in that series, and injuries disrupted his first-class career, before he returned to the headlines, being picked in New Zealand's squad for the 2012 World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka.

"Jacob Oram is a key part of our team and hopefully he can replicate that form that he showed in the Sri Lanka Premier League."- Ross Taylor
"Ross Taylor :- (1) Drops the easiest slip catch in the 1st over to let the opposition captain off. (2) Replaces an explosive opener with a bowler who bowls only one over. (3) Takes off James Franklin after 1-0-7-1. (4) Makes sure to bowl Jacob Oram to be hammered for 4-0-42-2. (5) Halts starting momentum by promoting Rob Who Nicol & Kane Who Williamson instead of Brendon McCullum. (6) Tries his best to ensure the chase is killed off by promoting Daniel Vettori against offspinners, demoting himself, officially declaring that he is scared to face Ajmal & his peers. (7) Successfully ensures the match is lost by going for a run after Umar Akmal picks up the ball & gets ready to throw having already taken 12 runs off the 1st 3 balls of the over. Just too many suspicious elements. Just too many."
What a Comeback by Yuvraj. Yuvraj Singh Six to Daniel Vettori Yuvraj Singh Six to Jacob Oram
A solitary Twenty20 it was, but it featured multiple narratives, an emotional return for Yuvraj Singh and his fans, an anti-climax for India and an incredible comeback from New Zealand. After Brendon McCullum had punched a furious 91, Virat Kohli counter-punched with a majestic 70, leaving India with 49 to get off 42 deliveries with seven wickets remaining. That is when the Chennai pitch started to behave more like a typical Chennai pitch; the ball had come on nicely till then. MS Dhoni and Yuvraj struggled to get the ball off the square, James Franklin and Jacob Oram took all pace off the ball to make it harder, and the asking-rate surged suddenly. Dhoni, having promoted himself ahead of Manoj Tiwary and Rohit Sharma, ended unbeaten on a perplexing 22 off 23 deliveries, failing to find any timing on his swipes and slogs and reduced to nudging singles on the leg side. With 20 needed off the last eight deliveries, Yuvraj managed to heave Oram over deep midwicket for six. With 12 needed off the last five, D ...
New Zealand beat India by one run in thriller, wins series Yuvraj Singh made an emotional return to international cricket but India snatched defeat from the jaws of victory to allow New Zealand to win the Twenty20 series with a thrilling one-run victory on Tuesday. Chasing a target of 168, the hosts were cruising along comfortably at one stage but faltered at the death to give Black Caps a 1-0 series win. The first T20 international in Visakhapatnam was washed out without a ball being bowled. Men in Blue needed 13 runs from the last over but could manage only manage 11 in a dramatic finish which saw Virat Kohli's blazing 40-ball 70 go in-vain. Once Kohli was dismissed was out in the 14th over, the momentum suddenly shifted as Yuvraj who scored 34 off 26 balls with a boundary and two sixes along Mahendra Singh Dhoni (22 not out) couldn't find the ropes. New Zealand's experienced T20 bowlers Jacob Oram and James Franklin used the slower deliveries to good effect. It was Franklin who bowled well disguised sl ...
Alas !. India lost the only T20 against New Zealand, with the difference of a single run. Highlights of the game are Virat's 70, Yuvi's blistering knocks and James Franklin's last 4 overs. A part from the result, composed innings of Yuvraj makes us to remember his past days. No difference while he is in crease. The well timed huge shots, particularly two sixers against Daniel Vettori and Jacob Oram shows that he hasn't lost the touch and momentum. So, lets hope Yuvi will be unbeaten forever and ever. Yes, YUVI CAN !!! We have to wait for the next big match to see all the action against Pakisthan on 17-Sep. :-)
I hate you James Franklin and Jacob Oram for spoiling Yuvraj's comeback game. Wishing you bad luck for World T20.
