Kyle David Mills (born 15 March 1979) is a former New Zealand international cricketer who captained the New Zealand cricket team in limited overs matches. Mills played top-class cricket between 1998 and 2015 as an all-rounder.
Early life and education
Having been injured in Australia in February 2007, Mills was forced to withdraw from the 2007 World Cup. After an operation on a patella tendon and a winter of rehabilitation, he worked his way back to fitness to take part in New Zealand's tour of South Africa in November/December 2007.
Called into the Test side, Mills was forced to withdraw from the second and final Test due to a stomach bug. Coming fresh into the three match one day series, Mills was the pick of the New Zealand bowlers in all three matches, taking career best figures of 5/25 in the series opener. Despite New Zealand losing the series 2–1, Mills was named Man of the Series.
Due in part of the absence of Shane Bond, who signed to play in the Indian Cricket League, and Mills' continued good form, he maintained his place in the ODI side, playing during New Zealand's 2009 ICC World Twenty20 campaign, reaching the final of the 2009 ICC Champions Trophy, which they lost to Australia in South Africa.
