Don Cleverley, a right-arm fast-medium bowler who was able to extract surprisingly lift, played two Tests for New Zealand, the first in 1931-32 against South Africa, and the second 14 years later in the one-off match against Australia at Wellington in 1945-46. He had no real success in either match. Cleverley represented Auckland for 21 seasons from 1930-31, ending his career with one season at Central Districts by which time he was 43. He was also a national amateur boxing champion. At the time of his death he was the oldest living Test cricketer.
