Profile

Wisden obituary
Raymond William George Emery, who died in Auckland on December 18, 1982, aged 67, played twice for New Zealand as a right-hand opening bat in their inaugural series against West Indies, in 1951-52. He was already 36 when he did so, though it was during his best season (433 runs at 72.16 for Canterbury in the Plunket Shield). He also bowled, at medium pace, and in a West Indian total of 546 for six in the second Test at Auckland took the wickets of Worrell and Walcott. In all first-class cricket he scored 1,177 runs (average 29.42), including three centuries, and took 22 wickets at 34.27 apiece.
