Profile

William McDougall Anderson, who died at Christchurch, New Zealand, on December 21, 1979, played for Canterbury from 1938 to 1949, scoring 1,728 runs with an average of 36.80. An attacking left-hander, in his one Test match, New Zealand's first after the War - against Australia in 1946- he opened the batting. He was perhaps unlucky not to be picked for the 1949 tour of England. Later he was for a time a New Zealand selector. His son, Robert, has played for New Zealand in recent years.
