New Zealand's Captain Daniel Vettoricompleted a superb career double in Colombo yesterday, Vettori picked up his 300th Wicket in the 2nd Test Match against Sri Lankato go with the 3,000 Test runs which he has already attained.
Widely regarded as one of the most talented left arm spin bowlers in world Cricket Vettori explained that he has always seen himself as more of a spin bowler than an all rounder, and that he would therefore cherish this accomplishment for the rest of his life.
New Zealand will indeed need some more brilliance from Vettori if they are to take anything from this contest, as Sri Lanka found themselves 262-3 at close of play on day 1.
Sri Lanka who have been one of the form teams in world cricket in recent months won the 1st Test Match.
Last month Sri Lanka completed ODI and Test Series victories against Pakistan. to their avenge their loss to Younis Khan's men in the ICC World Twenty20 final in England in June.

Fantastic achievement for Vettori. One of the last orthodox spinners to take 300 test wickets before mystery spin takes over completely IMO.
