Frank Cameron was wily fast-medium bowler, able to swing the ball both ways, whose tenacity as a stock bowler was a key factor in New Zealand's success against South Africa in 1961-62. Usually a moderate No. 11 batsman, he was dismissed just twice in 14 innings on the England tour of 1965, and finished top of the tour averages with 45. He was later chairman of New Zealand's selectors, and was awarded an MBE for services to the game.
