Profile

Wisden Overview
Offspinner Peter Petherick is one of three men - Maurice Allom and Damien Fleming being the others - to take a hat-trick on his Test debut. He did so against Pakistan in Lahore in 1976-77 at the age of 34, having only made his first-class debut for Otago a year earlier, and what an illustrious triumvirate it was: Javed Miandad, Wasim Raja and Intikhab Alam. But there was only one way for Petherick to go from there, and he duly obliged. He was unfortunate not to be picked for the 1978 England tour, and played just six Tests (only one at home in which he bowled four overs), five of which New Zealand lost, taking 16 wickets at an average of 42.56.
