A.B. is a legend of the cricketing field who is pretty handy with the golf clubs loves coming to Queenstown and sharing his stories from his career.

Allan Border (AO) is a former international cricket batsman, and for many years, the captain of the Australian team.

His playing nickname was “A.B.” and he played 156 Test matches in his career, a record until it was passed by fellow Australian Steve Waugh. Border formerly held the world record for the number of consecutive Test appearances of 153, before it was surpassed in June 2018 by Alastair Cook, and is second on the list of number of Tests as captain.

He was primarily a left-hand batsman but also had occasional success as a part-time left-arm orthodox spinner. Border amassed 11,174 Test runs (a world record until it was passed by Brian Lara in 2006). He hit 27 centuries in his Test career.

He retired as Australia’s most capped player and leading run-scorer in both Tests and ODIs. His Australian record for Test Match runs stood for 15 years before Ricky Ponting overtook him in July 2009. Border was one of the 55 inaugural inductees of the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.

In a fan poll conducted by the Cricket Australia in 2017, he was named in the country’s best Ashes XI in the last 40 years.
