Sir Richard Hadlee was voted the New Zealand Sportsperson of the Decade 1987 for his contribution to cricket. He took 431 test wickets Played 86 test matches and 115 one-day internationals and had a Test Bowling Average of 22.29.
Aptly described as “The Master of Rhythm and Swing”, Sir Richard Hadlee is New Zealand’s greatest cricketer. Internationally, he competes with Ian Botham, Kapil Dev and Imran Khan for recognition as best all-rounder and with Dennis Lillee for recognition as the greatest fast bowler ever. He built up this reputation with more than 400 test wickets to his credit.
Sir Richard remains involved with the game even after he retired from international cricket. He served as Ambassador of the Bank of New Zealand for their cricket sponsorship. He also accepted the role of chairman of New Zealand selectors and since 2000 has been a selector for the Black Caps.
His presentations are witty, articulate and full of rich anecdotes from his playing career. The many confrontations with the best cricketers in the world are bound to produce memorable stories from the playing field and Sir Richard shares them with the best.
