New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson is one of the renowned names produced by the ICC under-19 World Cup. Anderson was a part of the New Zealand under-19 squad which participated in the 2008 edition in Malaysia. Anderson is known for his hard-hitting ability, and his left arm medium fast bowling is also the ambassador if this year’s edition being played in New Zealand.
In an interview, Anderson answered some questions about himself by the fans. Anderson spoke about his favorite food, his favorite cricketing moment so far and his choice of career if not a cricketer. Anderson who plays for the Mumbai Indian in the Indian Premier League spends a lot of time India and has revealed ‘Paapdi Chat’ as his favorite food. He also revealed that he is a big fan of ‘Pokemon’. He said:
“I always chose Squirtle when I was on the Game Boy!”
Talking about his favorite moment in cricket, he revealed that his knock against South Africa in the 2015 World Cup. He said:
“Most of you will think that my ODI hundred [scored off just 36 deliveries against West Indies in 2014, at the time the fastest century in the format] would be my best game, but the situation and stage of the game matter a massive amount rather than the total. I scored 60-odd in the semi-final of the 2015 World Cup against South Africa, and it was my first time in a 50-over World Cup. All of these points, and the result of the game, made it probably one of my best and definitely up there as one of my favourites.”
If not a cricketer, Anderson said that he would have become an interior designer:
“I love designing homes, as strange as that may seem for a cricketer,” he said. “I’ve always loved it. So I’d possibly have been an architect, or an interior designer. Hopefully I can stick with cricket for a bit longer!”
Anderson also named AB De Villiers as the batsman outside New Zealand but also accepted the fact that Virat Kohli is the best batsman across the formats.
