The oldest of Walter Hadlee's cricket playing sons - and unlike his two brothers, a batsman rather than bowler - international recognition came late to Barry Hadlee who was 33 when he made the first of his two ODI appearances against England in 1974-75. What made his call-up more surprising was that he had played only one one-day game in the previous three years and in that had been run-out for 0. He was included in New Zealand's squad for the inaugural World Cup in 1975 but made only one outing, although in both ODIs he played with both his brothers. His career as an opener with Canterbury lasted almost two decades but it was only in the twilight years that he really found consistency. In four of his last six seasons his average topped 40, and his career best of 163* came in his final season.
