Graham Gedye was an opening batsman with an undistinguished record who found his form in 1963-64, scoring his maiden hundred - and another in the second innings for good measure - for Auckland against Central Districts that summer. It won him selection for the three-Test series at home to South Africa where he made 166 runs at 27.66, including two fifties. He played the last of his four Tests against Pakistan in 1964-65, retiring at the end of that season.
