    New Zealand Cricket's mourning the death of legspinner Jack Alabaster, aged 93

    New Zealand Cricket's mourning the death of legspinner Jack Alabaster, aged 93


    The icon of both Southland and Otago cricket played 21 tests from 1955 to 1972 - taking 49 wickets.

    Alabaster was part of New Zealand's first four test victories - and also holds the unusual distinction of both his first and last first-class match coming in matches for the national side.
