Mark Pirie’s poem for Daniel Vettori published by Cricket Society

My poem, 'Daniel Vettori' appeared in the July/August edition of the Cricket Society News Bulletin in England and was included as part of the front page editorial by John Symons.

This publication coincided with the New Zealand cricket team’s tour of the UK, and followed on from Dan Vettori’s retirement from cricket at the conclusion of the 2015 World Cup final in Melbourne.

I, like many cricket followers internationally, will miss the sight of Dan on the cricket field.

My poem celebrates Dan’s contribution to the game. It was great to see it published somewhere prominent.

I wish him well for the future.
