Profile

Wisden Obituary
Watt was Bert Sutcliffe's regular opening partner for Otago, and quite a contrast they made. Sutcliffe was left-handed, world-class, and very entertaining; Les Watt was defensive-minded right-hander with limited shots. When they set a national first-wicket record, batting all day at Auckland on December 29, 1950, by the last over Sutcliffe had 258 and Watt 96. Trying to reach his hundred, Watt was caught from the last ball of the day. Their 373 together is still the best in New Zealand, though Glenn Turner and Terry Jarvis took the overall record with 387 in the Georgetown Test of 1971-72.
