Angus ‘Gus’ McKenzie is an exceptionally talented young all-round prospect from Wellington, schooled in Auckland and now playing for Canterbury in the New Zealand Domestic competitions. A talented Right-arm Fast/Medium seamer, Gus is also a classy left-handed middle order batsman capable of batting just about anywhere in the order.

Schooled at the prestigious Westlake Boys High School, Gus represented Auckland at U17 & U19 level, predominantly as an opening Batsman that also bowled at U17 level before moving to the middle order and taking the new ball for the U19 side. In Summer 2017-18, Gus was selected to represent the New Zealand XI against the touring West Indies side.

Gus relocated to Otago in 2019, linking with Albion Cricket Club and with a view to pushing his way into the Otago Volts side. Summer 2019-20 was a breakout summer for Gus, with exceptional form for Albion CC & Otago A, he was rewarded with his first List A appearances for the Volts in Feb 2020. A first class debut would follow just 12 months later at the back end of the 2020-21 summer. He moved to Canterbury ahead of the 2022-23 summer.

In summer 2022, Gus joined Bishopston CC in the WEPL league and was outstanding, scoring 588 runs @ 39.20 and bagging a very impressive 37 wickets @ 15.70 with a best of 5-16. He returned in 2023 and was again exceptional, scoring 460 runs @ 38.33 and bagging 39 wickets @ 11.69 as Bishopston CC won the WEPL Prem 2 title

Seeking a return to the UK next summer, Gus will be a great pick up for any club seeking a quality seam-bowling all-rounder.
