There is cricket on the television in Trevor Barber 's Christchurch house: Afghanistan are playing Sri Lanka in a World Cup match in Dunedin. The two opposing teams, even the format itself, highlight how much the game has changed since Barber played his only Test nearly 60 years ago. "It's just amazing how much the game has changed from my time," he says. "We only played Test cricket and Plunket Shield. Barber was an aggressive batsman who liked to dominate the bowlers, sometimes a little too much. He scored just one first-class century and averaged 23 - not the sort of numbers you expect of a Test batsman. But he was a fine player to watch. Now he is New Zealand's oldest living Test cricketer. He turned 90 in June 2015, three years older than John Reid, who he captained at Wellington and then played under in the New Zealand side. Reid remains even now a household name among sports fans in New Zealand. Barber is not. But he was, is, and forever will be a New Zealand Test cricketer. The proof is in a suitcase of what Barber calls "memory ticklers", little bits and pieces that tell his story. There are handfuls of telegrams congratulating him on his Test call-up, newspaper clippings, team photos. One newspaper article from 1961 reviews the book New Zealand Cricketers by the renowned cricket writer Dick Brittenden. A photo of Barber accompanies the story, captioned with Brittenden's description of him: "A positive cricketer, but an off-drive does not make a Test batsman. " Barber chuckles at the line. From the Dominion Post in 1957: "Because of the beauty of his stroke-making many a cricket follower, relishing these magnificent displays, had often observed how much greater Barber would have been with more patience. His name will long be recalled for his pleasing and often dynamic approach to the game, and for his ability to portray cricket as a much more joyous spectacle than it has become in more recent times". In his only Test match, against West Indies at the Basin Reserve in 1956, he was out to Sonny Ramadhin in both innings, going for his shots, for 12 and 5. "Today I might have got away with it," Barber says. My understanding as a captain and also as a batsman was that the first thing you'd do when you go out there is dominate the bowlers.
