Bryan Andrews was a solid right-arm medium-pace bowler who played for Central Districts, Canterbury, and finally Otago with success - he averaged under 25 for all three - and international recognition came late. He was surprise choice for the 1973-74 as his best years seemed to be behind him and his selection came after two moderate domestic seasons. The New Zealanders struggled in the warm-ups matches, but Andrews took 5 for 85 against Queensland in the game before the first Test and it was enough for him to be picked. He opened the bowling with Richard Hadlee but took 0 for 100 as Australia won by an innings. He was retained for the second Test, taking 2 for 40 in a drawn match. He made only one more first-class appearance, against the touring Australians later that season, before retiring.
