Former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori is set to make a return to competitive cricket after being named in the Northern Districts squad for the eighth round of the Ford Trophy. Vettori has been out of action since the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka last year, where he suffered a recurrence of a chronic Achilles tendon injury.

The injury kept him out of New Zealand's tours to Sri Lanka and South Africa, and the current home series against England.

Northern Districts coach Grant Bradburn welcomed Vettori's return to the side. "We're delighted to welcome a player of Dan's caliber and experience back into the side as we approach the Ford Trophy Preliminary Finals. It's been a long road to recovery for Dan this summer and he's relishing being fit again and ready to play."

Northern Districts take on Wellington on March 20 and have already qualified for the minor preliminary finals.
