Daniel Vettori is set to play in the third New
Zealand-Pakistan cricket test in Sharjah and
become the country’s outright record-holder
for test appearances.
New Zealand coach Mike Hesson obser ved
there was “not a blade of grass” on the wicket at
the venue and believes playing three specialist
spinners offers the tourists their best chance
of taking 20 wickets after securing 15 in an
improved second test performance last week
Vettori trained with the team at the venue
last night. The idea is for him to join Mark
Craig and Ish Sodhi in a rare New Zealand
test spinning trio.
The 35 year-old has been asked to play on a
Vettori and Stephen Fleming have played
111 matches, although the left-arm spinner
has also played a test for the World XI in 2005.
His 360 wickets at 34.42 mean he’s second on
the New Zealand test list behind Sir Richard
Hadlee’s 431. His 4516 test runs means just
he, Kapil Dev and Ian Botham have more
than 4000 runs and 300 wickets.
Vettori last played a test against the West
Indies at Antigua in July 2012.
Originally, thought was given to playing
Luke Ronchi as a specialist batsman, replacing
Jimmy Neesham. Now it is a case of a spin
all-rounder set to replace a medium pace all-
“ We played a (practice) game here in Sharjah,
saw the wicket we’re likely to play on, and with
Dan being over here, the possibility of playing
three spinners is one we couldn’t give up,”
“ We haven’t named our side but his
experience and knowledge in these conditions,
combined with the fact he’s fit and strong
again, will help.”
Vettori bowled nine overs in the New
Zealand ‘A’ one-day match against the United
Arab Emirates yesterday. He took one wicket
for 41 runs.
In September, Vettori said his days as a test
cricketer appeared over.
He said he was ready to resume at the
limited overs bowling crease after a sustained
rehabilitation on a damaged Achilles tendon,
but doubted he could continue to meet the
requirements of tests.
“(Test cricket ’s) not at the forefront of my
mind. I can’t guarantee the amount of overs
(required) to play a test match and don’t want
to get in way of Ish (Sodhi) and Mark (Craig)
in their development. It ’s definitely on the
back burner. The World Cup’s the goal. Tests
would put too much of a strain on the body at
this stage of my career.”
The difference with this scenario is that the
usual onerous demands for a spinner bowling
away against Pakistan are likely to be less if
the workload is shared three ways. — N ZME

Warriors chief executive Jim Doyle
believes New Zealand has the playing
talent to help sustain a second NRL
team but has doubts whether Wellington
could muster the required crowd support.
A four-man contingent out of Australia,
fronted by Sydney lawyer Robert Picone,
are working with a Wellington party to
extend the NRL in New Zealand with a
capital-based team after 2017.
While acknowledging playing depth
is strong throughout the country, Doyle
says recruitment is just one of numerous
challenges a new club would need to
overcome to ensure any long-term
“There’s certainly the talent here,”
Doyle said. “ If you look at Wellington,
I’m not sure that they would have the
“If you look at the Phoenix, they’ve got
a relatively small crowd, and there’s a lot
more to running an NRL club than just
having the talent. ”
The challenge in
Wellington’s sporting audience to attend
matches week-in and week-out could be
overcome by taking up to four games per
year around the country.
“The reality is the Wellington district is
500,000 people but if we extend that to
the rest of New Zealand, less Auckland,
we’ve got one and a half million people,”
explained Wellington Rugby League
general manager Jason Hemson.
“Christchurch is obviously one where
we could take a couple of games,
Dunedin’s another where you could take
at least one game, then you’ve got other
areas in the North Island, the Taranakis,
the Rotoruas as well.”
The lure of a strong weekly television
audience and capturing the interest
of league fans outside Auckland are
two of the main selling points of the
A second New Zealand team would
allow the NRL to have a game on this
side of the Tasman each week and
increase opportunities around television
scheduling. It would also increase the
pathways for emerging homegrown
talent and stem the tide of young New
Zealanders heading offshore, especially
Australia, in search of a playing
Other bids are being prepared across
Australia and Papua New Guinea, and
although the Wellington bid is intent
on establishing a new club to rival the
Warriors’ presence in Auckland, the
NRL has some big decisions to make
before 2018, when a new broadcasting
deal is negotiated.
“They’re looking at where they can
grow the game and where they are
taking the game,” Hemson said.
“Should there be more teams or should
there be teams in different areas? Out of
that could come the possible relocation
of a team. It ’s really just a matter of
making the NRL aware that we’re a
viable option and the reasons why we
think a second team would be good, not
just for the New Zealand rugby league
area but also for the other clubs and the
Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy will
get their first look at the revamped
Australian Open course today.
Scott may still have thoughts about
crashing in the final round last year
where, with a third straight gold jacket
in his keeping, he blew a four-stroke
lead to surrender the title to McIlroy.
While Scott comes off a share of
second at the Australian Masters,
McIlroy will be coming off a plane from
Dubai, where he finished equal second
behind winner Henrik Stenson at the
DP World Tour Championship.
That victory helped see the Swede
leapfrog Scott into world No 2, the
Australian falling to No 3 in the
rankings released yesterday.
It was at Royal Sydney last year where
McIlroy ’s resurgence started.
Winless to that point in 2013 he
conquered a faltering Scott with a
birdie on the final hole.
The two had gone head-to-head on
the back nine, Scott squandering a
number of birdie chances that would
have pushed him two clear of the
Since then it has been all McIlroy,
all the time.
He won the British Open at Royal
Liverpool by two shots and made it
a major double in 2014 by taking out
the PGA Championship at Valhalla
Scott is still waiting on his second
major after his masters victory in 2013.
