Retirement XI of 2015


8. Daniel Vettori (New Zealand):

Retirement XI of 2015The Black Cap veteran, Daniel Vettori is one of the most successful spinners of the world. The former Kiwi captain is also the leading wicket-taker for his nation. The left-arm spinner whose international cricket lasted for almost two decades has been seen as the face of New Zealand cricket. It is note-worthy that Vettori’s utility was not only restricted on the bowling front. But he was more than a handy batsman for his side which had prompted the team management to promote him up the order in the whites. The 36-year-old had a very rhythmic bowling action which was very easy on the eye. His dead accuracy brought about many difficulties for the batters. The Black Caps all-rounder last appeared in international cricket in the World Cup 2015 and his role was momentous in New Zealand’s dream journey to the finals.

The Auckland born cricketer picked up 705 wickets with 22 fifers against his name. With the bat in hand, the southpaw accumulated 6,989 runs with 6 centuries and 27 fifties.
