Profile

Bill Playle was a stylish batsman who was a surprise choice for the 1958 New Zealand side to tour England, a squad which has gone down as one of the weakest of all time. Playle struggled during an abnormally wet summer, and in 23 matches managed just 414 runs. In the Headingley Test he batted for 194 minutes in scoring 18. In his only other series, against England in 1962-63, he made 65 at Wellington, his only fifty in eight Tests. He started with Auckland, but later moved to Western Australia. His highest score, 122, came for WA in 1965-66.
