Heat BBL Head Coach - Dan Vettori

A Brisbane Heat foundation player and legend of the game, Dan Vettori will enter BBL|06 in his second season as the club's head coach. Dan played 15 games for the Heat across three seasons, taking 15 wickets, while also being named the club's Player of the Season in BBL|03. 

After a distinguished 18-year international career that saw him play 442 matches and take 705 wickets across all formats, Dan has moved his attention to coaching where he also leads the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League. 

His durability and all-round ability as a player is highlighted by the fact he has 6 Test centuries and close to 7,000 international runs to his name.
