    Daniel Vettori

    I've been watching the first game of the Chappell/Hadlee Trophy, and seeing Vettori bowl I was wondering why not so long ago, alot of people were saying how he isn't that good, and only performs against lowly teams.

    IMO, Vettori is an accurate, smart and techniquely good bowler. He bowls varied speeds and has great flight, and always competes. I think he would be one of the top bowlers going around right now.

    yeah i've been watching it update on cricinfo.com (i can't watch it over here) and he's already picked up 3 wickets, including a double wicket maiden. he didn't impress me much in the test series but so far in this game the aussies really only seem to be hitting singles off him, and he just finished with 10-1-31-3, so he must be doing something right.

    I thought his Test series was also pretty good. Not very productive, but he still bowled well.

    He was NZ's best bowler by a long shot. Him and Oram were IMO the only good things for NZ to come out of those 2 tests.

    Good to see him getting back to his best - it's been a long time coming.

    I think because he is so heavily relied upon, in a slow bowling role.

    Most finger spinners do average about that though.

    Hes one of those players who just lifts against Australia. Hes the bowling equivalent of Laxman.

    And really, if you think about it, he always lifts for big games, especially in ODIs.

    the kiwis have no-one else simply! when the other team are smacking them, they need someone to keep the runs down, so vettori vacates that job. he is an excellent bowler, and it seems he is on the improve even now. he bowled very well with cairns at the other end, and i think that says something.
