Adam Fraser Milne (born 13 April 1992) is a New Zealand professional cricketer who plays limited overs cricket for the New Zealand national cricket team. He is a right-arm fast bowler.
Milne was born in Palmerston North, New Zealand and attended Palmerston North Intermediate Normal School, and then Palmerston North Boys' High School.
Milne made his first-class cricket debut as an 18 year old for Central Districts in the 2009/10 season against Canterbury. He took a wicket with his second ball in senior cricket. He has played for the team throughout his professional career, although his appearances have been limited by injuries and by international duties.
He was recruited for the 2015 Indian Premier League by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) but was unable to play due to injury; he did play for RCB in both the 2016 and 2017 editions of the tournament. In May 2017, Milne signed for Kent County Cricket Club to play the second half of the 2017 English cricket season. Milne had been due to play for Essex in the 2016 season but was forced to withdraw due to injury. He made his debut for Kent in the 2017 County Championship against Nottinghamshire in June 2017. He played in five Championship matches and seven matches in the 2017 NatWest t20 Blast for Kent, taking 28 wickets. He set a new record for Kent's best bowling in T20 matches with 5/11 taken against Somerset at Taunton in August, his best T20 bowling figures. He returned to play for Kent in both the 2018 and 2019 t20 Blast.
Milne debuted for the New Zealand Cricket Team in 2010 and, although expensive, his pace impressed critics who could bowl in excess of 150 km/h. In May 2018, he was one of twenty players to be awarded a new contract for the 2018–19 season by New Zealand Cricket.
In February 2021, Milne was bought by the Mumbai Indians ahead of the 2021 Indian Premier League and in June returned to Kent for the 2021 T20 Blast, his fourth spell with the county. He took a hat-trick during the competition against Surrey from the final three balls of the match. In August 2021, Milne was named as injury cover in New Zealand's squad for the 2021 ICC Men's T20 World Cup.
In February 2022, he was bought by the Chennai Super Kings in the auction for the 2022 Indian Premier League tournament. In April 2022, he was bought by the Birmingham Phoenix for the 2022 season of The Hundred in England.
