Daniel Luca Vettori, ONZM (born 27 January 1979) is a New Zealand former cricketer who played for the New Zealand cricket team in all formats and a former captain in all formats. He is the 200th Test cap for New Zealand.

He was the captain of New Zealand between 2007 and 2011. Vettori is the eighth player in Test history to take 300 wickets and score 3,000 runs. He is the youngest player to have represented New Zealand in Test cricket, having made his debut in 1996–97 at the age of 18, and New Zealand's most-capped test cricketer with 112 caps, and New Zealand's most capped One-Day cricketer with 284 caps. Vettori was a bowling all-rounder who bowled slow left-arm orthodox spin.

He is known for his accuracy, flight and guile rather than prodigious turn, and also his speed variation. He has a Test batting average of around 30 which made him one of the more consistent batsmen in the New Zealand cricket team. In the fourth season of Indian Premier League, he was contracted by Royal Challengers Bangalore for US$550,000.He is widely regarded as one of the greatest cricketers of all time and the best cricketer New Zealand national team has ever had.

Vettori announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket following the 2015 Cricket World Cup.[2]

On April 2, 2015, Vettori signed a 3-year contract to become head coach of Brisbane Heat, effectively ending his playing career in all forms of the game. He is currently the head coach of the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash league and Middlesex in the T20 Blast.

Early career[edit]

He was born in Auckland and brought up in Hamilton, attending Marian School and later St. Paul's Collegiate School. When available, he plays provincial cricket for Northern Districts and is also an international member of Indian Premier League team the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Vettori also represents the Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League.

He is among a very small minority of international sports stars to wear prescription spectacles while playing sport, and only one of very few cricketers in the modern era to play Test cricket with spectacles, others including Zimbabwean Charles Coventry, Australian Chris Rogers, and West Indian Clive Lloyd.

Bowling records[edit]

A graph showing Vettori's Test career bowling statistics and how they have varied over time.

He took his 300th Test wicket in Sri Lanka in 2009, becoming only the second New Zealand bowler (after Richard Hadlee) to pass that mark[3] and he is currently New Zealand's leading ODI wicket-taker.[4]

Vettori has three 10 wicket hauls in Test cricket, against Sri Lanka, Australia and Bangladesh. His best innings figures were achieved at Auckland in 1999–2000 against Australia where he took 7/87. He finished with career best match figures in that game, taking 12/149. They are the second best ever by a New Zealander, with only Richard Hadlee having taken more in a match. With another 12 wicket effort, against Bangladesh in Chittagong, he became the only New Zealander to have taken a dozen wickets in a Test on two occasions.

Vettori is the first left arm spinner in cricket history to take 300+ wickets in both ODIs and Tests. He was also the first left arm spinner in test history to capture 350 test wickets. He's now the second leading wicket taker in test history as a left arm spinner with a haul of 362 wickets just behind Rangana Herath.[5]He's the youngest test cricketer to capture 100 test wickets at the age of 21.[6]

He is the bowler to have most frequently dismissed Shane Warne in Tests, getting him out nine times, most notably for 99 in a Test at Perth. Ironically, in the 1st Test against Pakistan in 2009–10 season, Vettori was himself dismissed for 99,[7] while chasing a world record in centuries batting from position number 8.He is also the leading runscorer in test history when batting at number 8 position or lower(2227 runs)[8]Daniel Vettori also has scored most number of test tons when batting at number 8 position(4)[9]

Captaincy[edit]

Prior to becoming captain on a permanent basis in 2007, Vettori had captained the Black Caps in ODI cricket on occasions such as when regular captain Stephen Fleming was not available. As of the end of 2006, he had led New Zealand in 11 games, winning eight of them.

He captained New Zealand at the inaugural Twenty20 World Championship in South Africa.[10] Subsequently, it was announced that Vettori would captain the Black Caps in all forms of the game: Twenty20s, ODIs and Tests. Initially, he was announced to be captain only of the former two.[11]

Vettori's captaincy had a rocky start, losing a Test series in England first up. Vettori also attracted some criticism in the following ODI series when he engaged in angry shouting from the balcony at The Oval, regarding a controversial run out that had occurred. He then refused to shake hands with the England team after the match.[12] This contrasted with Fleming's more languid, laid back style.[13]

Vettori stood down from the captaincy and retired from One day Internationals and Twenty20 Internationals after the 2011 World Cup. However, he was called back into the ODI team for the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy.His name is included in the final 15 of the New Zealand team for the 2015 Cricket World Cup to be held in Australia and New Zealand.[14] By that point, he retired from test cricket after his final test match was as an emergency injury cover against Pakistan in November, 2014.

Batting[edit]

Vettori matured into a useful lower-order batsman, having scored 4,000 Test runs, including six centuries (110 against Pakistan in 2011, 134 against Pakistan 2009, 140 against Sri Lanka 2009, 138* against Pakistan in 2003, 127 against Zimbabwe in 2005 and 118 against India in 2009) as well as 23 half-centuries. Although it took Vettori 47 Tests to score his first 1,000 runs at an average of 17.24, the second thousand took him just 22 Tests at a rate of 42.52 per innings.

In December 2006, Vettori began establishing himself as more of an all-rounder, batting at number 5 for New Zealand in the one-day series against Sri Lanka.

On 4 December 2009, despite the Black Caps only scoring 99 runs against Pakistan, Vettori became the highest Test run scorer batting at no.8 spot, a record previously held by Shane Warne.

After suffering a dip in form of batting in 2010 Vettori scored a century against Pakistan when he made 110 as New Zealand's lower order resisted to help post a total of 356 all out.[15] Vettori averages a career 30.60 but his average jumps to 57.9 against Pakistan against whom he has three of his six centuries.

In July 2014, he played for the MCC side in the Bicentenary Celebration match at Lord's.[16]

Personal life[edit]

Vettori is of Italian origin.[17][18] He is married to Mary O'Carroll (2007), with whom he has four children. He moved from Hamilton to Auckland to live with her but has continued playing for the Northern Districts Knights.[19] They have a son named James[20] (born 8 March 2009).[21] Vettori was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the 2011 Queen's Birthday Honours, for services to cricket.[22] Vettori is the first cousin of David Hill, a rugby union player who played in one Test for the All Blacks.[23]

A biography of Vettori was published in August 2008.[24]
