Wynne Bradburn started his career with Northern Districts as a middle-order batsman but his success came after he switched to opening. His call-up against South Africa in 1963-64 came as something of a surprise, given his form that season had not been outstanding and he had yet to score his maiden first-class hundred. He made 32 in his first Test and 2 and 14 in the second. By the time the side came to be chosen for the 1965 England tour he was out of the reckoning. The following summer he had his only hundred, 107 against Auckland. His son, Grant, also played Test cricket for New Zealand, one of only seven father-and-son pairings to do so.
