Profile

An top-order batsman, Gary Stead played five Tests in nine months in 1999, averaging a decent 34.75 and never being dismissed in single figures. Against South Africa he showed his great character, digging in and grinding out runs, but after two mediocre performances against West Indies he was dropped. His call-up had come after eight years of first-class cricket with Canterbury, and he led them for five seaosns from 1998-99 in a period in which they struggled. He later took to coaching, first working with New Zealand Cricket High Performance Centre, before taking over the national women's team in July 2008.
