Profile

John Ward was a reliable wicketkeeper and a solid, if not hugely successful, tailender who never quite live dup to his early promise - he was picked to tour South Africa after only two first-class matches. From the late fifties through to the mid sixties he was a semi-permanent member of the New Zealand squad, but had to wait until 1963-64 to make his debut, and although he kept efficiently, he was never able to command a regular place in the side.
