David Turner was a solid middle-order batsman for Hampshire throughout the 70s and early 80s, forming a vital part of a strong batting lineup alongside bigger names like Barry Richards and Gordon Greenidge. Turner was part of the 1973 Championship winning side. He scored 1,000 first-class runs in a season nine times, and was also a useful one-day player. On retiring from the county game, he returned to Chippenham where he runs a key cutting and shoe repair business that he took over from his father. When he has time he plays social cricket and enjoys a round of golf.

For New Zealand's wild child, there is probably no better place than county cricket right now
His current game is extremely premeditated, so as to delay taking risks, and it robs the innings of all natural flow
