Daniel Vettori set to return post injury
Set to make a return to competitive cricket is former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori, who has been named in the Northern District squad for the eighth round of the Ford Trophy.
Vettori has been out of competitive cricket post a Achilles tendon injury he suffered during the World T20 in Sri Lanka last year. He had to miss the tours of Sri Lanka and South Africa as well as the current home series against New Zealand due to the injury.
Grant Bradburn, coach of the Northern Districts team welcomed Vettori’s return. "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 have already qualified for the minor preliminary finals and will face Wellington on March 20th.
