Profile

Sensing the England selection door would never open, Roger Twose migrated to New Zealand more or less with the promise of Test cricket. With every reason, for Twose, a seasoned Warwickshire professional, soon displayed his wares as a crafty left-hand batsman, a miserly medium-pace bowler, and a shrewd tactical captain. Also, everything seemed a means to an end for Twose. As his commercial activities increased, Twose's cricket appetite slackened, to the point that he did not play Test cricket after the 1999 tour of England, where he starred in the 1999 World Cup. Twose was been an essential member of the New Zealand one-day squad, but his unavailability for one-day expeditions to Sharjah and Sri Lanka was followed by his retirement during the winter of 2001 to pursue other interests and a banking career.
