Profile

Nessie Snedden captained New Zealand in several representative matches against overseas sides, his first-class career finishing before New Zealand were granted Test Status. A capable allrounder, he played for Auckland from 1909 to 1928, averaging over 30 with the bat, and taking altogether nearly 100 wickets with his medium-pace bowling. He toured Australia in 1913-14, and after the war captained New Zealand against VS Ranford's Australian side in 1920-21 and against the MCC in 1922-23. His highest score was 139 against Hawke's Bay in 1920-21 when he also took 5 for 13. For most of the period between 1922 and 1937 he was a member of the New Zealand Selection Committee.
