Profile

A forceful opening batsman, Paul Whitelaw was rather unfortunate that he only played twice for New Zealand, both times against England in 1932-33. He acquitted himself well if not spectacularly, but was not given any other opportunity. His finest hour came in 1936-37 when, playing for Auckland against Otago on a rain-affected track, he made 195 in 330 minutes, adding 445 in 268 minutes for the third wicket with Bill Carson, a world record for that wicket which stood for almost 40 years.
