A right-hand bat and strokemaker, Terry Jarvis's debut for New Zealand against India at Madras in 1964-65 was a classic case of first-night nerves as he froze in crawling to 9 in a little over two hours. He fared better second time round, making an unbeaten 40 in an hour, and thereafter found his feet. He scored 263 runs at 32.83 on that tour, but in England in 1965 was bedeviled by illness contracted in India. He appeared against England in 1965-66 but had to wait another six years for another Test, opening in the series in the West Indies in 1971-72 in the absence of Graham Dowling. In the fourth Test in Guyana he scored a career-best 182, adding 387 for the first wicket with Glenn Turner. He ended the series with 277 runs at 46.16, but back home a poor series against Pakistan - he made three ducks in five innings - spelt the end. He subsequently co-founded Sky TV New Zealand and became a leading breeder of racehourses.
