Profile

Wisden obituary
The senior Test cricketer since Bob Wyatt's passing last year, Sir Jack Newman died on Sept 23, aged 94. He was the first New Zealander to reach the top rank direct from country cricket, in his case Nelson on South Island. Until the formation of Central Districts in 1950-51, players from minor associations outside NZ's four main cities had to pray for fair treatment from city selectors, but were often ignored.
