Cometh the Hour

Nathan Astle comes to play with “a superb and dominating” unbeaten 122 for the Black Caps to help them take the series 3-2 over “plucky losers” England and deservedly finish the summer with a trophy. Hitting the winning runs with a six and passing 5000 runs in one-day cricket Astle showed “why he is regarded as one of the world’s most complete one-day batsman”. Astle has scored 12 one-day centuries placing him 7th on the all-timers list overtaking Viv Richards, Gordon Greenidge and Aravinda de Silva.
