Not only is he there for his bowling but he has proved himself very handy as a left arm batter batting at No. 8 or 9.
One memorable moment for the young left arm orthodox spinner was in a Test match against Australia (when the memorable Test streak was on) Vettori took 12 wickets for the match and nearly got new Zealand into the record books with a victory against at the time was an unstoppable Australian Test outfit.
Vettori has enjoyed a rapid rise to fame in international cricket.
As his statistics show he just gets better and better and is with out a doubt new Zealand's best spinner at present and some say he may be the best they have ever had. Only time will tell.
