Daniel Vettori plays for the team Northern Districts cricket team
For his performances in 2005, 2008 and 2010 he was named in the World ODI XI by the ICC. He was also named in the World ODI XI and T20I XI by Cricinfo for 2007 and ODI XI for 2008.
In December 2006, Vettori began establishing himself as more of an all-rounder, batting at number 5 for New Zealand in the one-day series against Sri Lanka.
Prior to becoming captain on a permanent basis in 2007, Vettori had captained the Black Caps in ODI cricket on occasions such as when regular captain Stephen Fleming was not available. As of the end of 2006, he had led New Zealand in 11 games, winning eight of them.
A biography of Vettori was published in August 2008.
He took his 300th Test wicket in Sri Lanka in 2009, becoming only the second New Zealand bowler (after Richard Hadlee) to pass that mark and he is currently New Zealand's leading ODI wicket-taker.
On 4 December 2009, despite the Black Caps only scoring 99 runs against Pakistan, Vettori became the highest Test run scorer batting at no.8 spot, a record previously held by Shane Warne.
After suffering a dip in form of batting in 2010 Vettori scored a century against Pakistan when he made 110 as New Zealand's lower order resisted to help post a total of 356 all out. Vettori averages a career 30.60 but his average jumps to 57.9 against Pakistan against whom he has three of his six centuries.
Vettori matured into a useful lower-order batsman, having scored 4,000 Test runs, including six centuries (110 against Pakistan in 2011, 134 against Pakistan 2009, 140 against Sri Lanka 2009, 138* against Pakistan in 2003, 127 against Zimbabwe in 2005 and 118 against India in 2009) as well as 23 half-centuries. Although it took Vettori 47 Tests to score his first 1,000 runs at an average of 17.24, the second thousand took him just 22 Tests at a rate of 42.52 per innings.
Vettori is of Italian origin. He is married to Mary O'Carroll (2007), with whom he has three children. He moved from Hamilton to Auckland to live with her but has continued playing for the Northern Districts Knights. They have a son named James (born 8 March 2009). Vettori was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the 2011 Queen's Birthday Honours, for services to cricket. Vettori is the first cousin of David Hill, a rugby union player who played in one Test for the All Blacks.
Vettori stood down from the captaincy and retired from One day Internationals and Twenty20 Internationals after the 2011 World Cup. However, he was called back into the ODI team for the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. His name is included in the final 15 of the New Zealand team for the 2015 Cricket World Cup to be held in Australia and New Zealand. By that point, he retired from test cricket after his final test match was as an emergency injury cover against Pakistan in November 2014.
In July 2014, he played for the MCC side in the Bicentenary Celebration match at Lord's.
He was head coach for Royal Challengers Bangalore from 2014 to 2018. In July 2019, Vettori was appointed as the head coach of the Dublin Chiefs for the inaugural edition of the Euro T20 Slam cricket tournament. Bangladesh Cricket Board have announced the appointment of Daniel Vettori as their spin bowling coach, on 27 July 2019.
Currently, Daniel Vettori is 44 years, 0 months and 1 days old. Daniel Vettori will celebrate 45th birthday on a Saturday 27th of January 2024.
