Profile

Daniel Vettori has been on the international scene so long it is sometimes hard to believe he has only recently crossed into his thirties. The youngest man to play Test cricket for New Zealand, at the age of 18, he is one of only eight players to have managed the double of 300 Test wickets and 3000 runs. With time on his side, he could one day creep up towards Hadlee's 431 Test dismissals, but to do that Vettori would need to avoid the stress fractures in his back that troubled him earlier in his career. He also cannot afford another form slump like the one he suffered in 2003-04.

Timeline
    • January 18-21, 1997
      First sightings
      • At the age of 17, makes his first-class debut for Northern Districts against the touring England side in Hamilton, and snares Nasser Hussain as his first wicket, caught at slip attempting a drive.
    • February 6-10, 1997
      Test cricketer at 18
      • Makes Test debut barely three weeks later, against the same opposition. Despite having turned 18 in the meantime, is still the youngest man to play Test cricket for New Zealand. Takes 2 for 98 and his first victim is, once again, Hussain.
    • March 25, 1997
      Youngest in ODIs
      • Becomes New Zealand's youngest ODI player when he lines up against Sri Lanka. Is only given two overs, which cost 21 runs.

Best Performances
    • 4 for 46 and 5 for 84 v Sri Lanka, Hamilton, 1996-97
      • In his fourth Test, Vettori makes use of a sub-standard pitch to bowl New Zealand to a 120-run victory over Sri Lanka. It is a low-scoring match - the hosts make 222 and 273 - but Vettori's knowledge of his home ground gives New Zealand the edge. He warms up with four victims in the first innings and then in the second, as Sri Lanka chase an unlikely 326, he secures his first five-wicket haul in a Test. The 18-year-old Vettori is named Man of the Match.
    • 5 for 62 and 7 for 87 v Australia, Auckland, 1999-2000
      • Most bowlers would hope that match figures of 12 for 149 would be enough to set up a win. In Auckland, Vettori discovers that a Man-of-the-Match performance is a hollow reward when the team is defeated. Almost singlehandedly, Vettori gives the hosts a chance with a remarkable display that includes seven second-innings wickets. The target of 281 is too tall for his batting team-mates, however, as Colin Miller and Shane Warne also extract plenty of turn. Vettori's haul remains his best in a Test.
    • 6 for 87 and 2 for 142 v Australia, Perth, 2001-02
      • Another Man-of-the-Match effort for Vettori and another missed opportunity for New Zealand. After four New Zealanders pile on centuries Australia want to score just as voluminously. Vettori has other ideas and grabs six wickets including both Waughs, Adam Gilchrist, and famously Shane Warne for 99. The visitors have a 183-run lead and with the first two Tests of the three-match series drawn, they want a celebrated series win. But in the second innings the Australian wickets just don't tumble. Vettori claims 2 for 142, secures a run-out and thinks he has Steve Waugh caught behind for 13. The umpire disagrees, and the series is drawn 0-0.
