Profile

Mark Burgess was a top-order batsman who played 50 Tests for New Zealand and who captained them between 1978 and 1980 in the period as they were beginning to become an international force. Christopher Martin-Jenkins described him as "a fair-haired right-hander with a sound technique and some handsome attacking strokes, especially adept at driving … he was popular with both his own team and his opponents, essentially a dedicated amateur cricketer in a professional age, his attitude was that winning or losing was not life or death".
