5. Daniel Vettori (New Zealand)
Age is no barrier to success and this statement was proved again and again by Daniel Vettori. Six months ago Vettori wasn’t even on the selectors’ radar but a must win situation in the UAE saw him being inducted back into the squad after spending two years out due to injury and fitness issues. Vettori justified their faith this World Cup by putting brakes on the scoring in the middle overs and snaring set batsmen time and over again. He would have loved to sign off on a high, which unfortunately wasn’t to be so.
