New Zealand cricket

Dunedin the nursery for Otago

With 14 consecutive T20 wins, Otago are one of the teams to beat in the Champions League. They can also boast of a strong local flavour in their side, something even the IPL teams do not possess, with seven players in their squad hailing from Dunedin. Adrian Seconi has more in Otago Daily Times.

The prodigiously talented McCullum brothers - Brendon and Nathan - went to King's High School and grew up in South Dunedin. Who knows how many sixes they flogged over the back fence at the family home in Waterloo St? Batsman Michael Bracewell and spinner Nick Beard went to Kavanagh College, Hamish Rutherford and Sam Wells went to Otago Boys' High School, and James McMillan went to John McGlashan College.
