Guy William Fitzroy Overton, who died on September 7, 1993, aged 74, was one of New Zealand's best-liked cricketers. He was a fast-medium fight-arm swing bowler and a regular member of the Otago team from 1945 to 1956. He was also a particularly good-natured and hard-working player. Overton appeared in three Tests in South Africa in 1953-54, but his finest hour came when he took 7 for 52 against Western Australia on the way home. He took 169 first-class wickets but scored only 137 runs.
