Youngest Player to represent New Zealand in Tests

 

 Profile

Probably the most encouraging news to come out of the summer of 2002-03 was the sight of Daniel Vettori exhibiting some of the skills that have made him New Zealand's premier cricket spinner. Having put the stress fracture in his back, and lack of suitable opportunities due to unhelpful pitches, behind him, he has demonstrated all the guile that saw him selected as New Zealand's youngest Test player at age 18. As a spinner, he was the fastest to reach 100 Test wickets, but as plenty more promised to come, he went through a slump in form during 2003 and 2004. He showed signs of recapturing his old magic on the tour of England in 2004, but a torn hamstring in the second Test at Headingley cut short his tour. He feasted on his return against Bangladesh in October 2004, taking 20 for 224 in the two-match rout. A handy batsman down the order, he has also passed 1000 Test runs. He hit his second Test match hundred in August 2005 against Zimbabwe, and was named Stephen Fleming's replacement captain - Fleming was recovering from surgery to remove a benign tumour - for Australia's tour during the Chappell-Hadlee trophy in December 2005. Picked up six wickets and hit an unbeaten 53 in a thrilling win at Queenstown in the one-day series leg of West Indies' tour. In the Tests, he picked up seven wickets but was generally overshadowed by the good work of the pacers up the order.
