|Only Test||New Zealand v Australia at Wellington, Mar 29-30, 1946 scorecard|
Right-hand opening bat Ken Meuleman took part in the first post-war tour to New Zealand in 1945-46 where he played in the only Test at Wellington, scoring a duck. That was his only Test appearance, although he did visit New Zealand again in 1949-50. He started his career in Victoria, moving to Western Australia in 1952, and in 48 Sheffield Shield matches made 4916 runs at 48.19. His son, Robert, and his grandson, Scott, also played for the state, and he was a strong supporter of grass roots cricket and coached for many years after his retirement. He had a direct hand in the development in many of Western Australia's finest Test cricketers, including Justin Langer.
