The name of Gavin Larsen was synonymous with one-day internationals in New Zealand having played 121 matches and been a part of three consecutive World Cup teams. 'The Postman' (he always delivered) built a reputation as a miserly one-day bowler, beginning with the 1992 World Cup when New Zealand reached the semi-finals on home soil, where he became part of the 'dibbly-dobbly-wibbly-wobbly' trio along with Chris Harris and Willy Watson. During the 1999 World Cup in England, as New Zealand reached another semi-final, he conceded just 3.46 runs per over. After that tournament he called time on his international career due to injury and moved into the business world with one of New Zealand Cricket's major sponsors. He has since held various roles include CEO of Wellington and is part of the 2015 World Cup organising committee.
What's wrong with their cricket? Well, what isn't?
