Artie Dick played 17 Tests for New Zealand, his career starting at Durban in 1961 and concluding four years later at Lord’s.

In this Last Over With Erin interview, Artie talks about the “lovely man” who inspired him: Bert Sutcliffe, and his cricketing life that began as a boy with Kaikorai in Dunedin.

He goes on to discuss the pride that came with playing for New Zealand and being part of one of our most successful touring teams that went to South Africa in 1961-62. His 50* in the third Test of that series was vital in helping secure a win for the tourists.
