Search for Sutcliffe

Attempts to find and relocate the ashes of cricketing great Bert Sutcliffe have failed because no-one recorded where they had been buried nine years ago. Sutcliffe’s ashes were buried at the Carisbrook ground in Dunedin in April 21, but none of those who attended the ceremony can agree where the burial had exactly taken place. The ground is being redeveloped and the Sutcliffe family had agreed for the ashes to be relocated to University Oval, the headquarters for cricket in the city. “Dad’s ashes are proving as elusive as bowlers found taking his wicket,” son Gary Sutcliffe told The Otago Daily Times. Sutcliffe, a left-hander, was regarded as one of New Zealand’s most elegant batsmen. He played 42 tests, with five centuries and an average of 4.1.
