During the BLACKCAPS’ 2017 Test against South Africa at the Basin Reserve, Erin Campbell caught up with former Canterbury and New Zealand wicketkeeper, John Ward. 

In the first of our Last Over with Erin series, John recounts his introduction to the game, spurred on by his uncle, and talks of the time he claimed a stumping off one of New Zealand’s fastest bowlers.
