Profile

Paul Wiseman, a hard-working offspinner, never quite provided New Zealand with the match-winning partner for Daniel Vettori that they were searching for. However, he made a good impression in Sri Lanka and continued to vindicate his choice as the preferred spinning support for Vettori at a time when New Zealand were not blessed with resources. A lack of variation was a problem and he floated in and out of the side for two years. He missed out on the 2004 England trip but was recalled for the Bangladesh tour in 2004-05. However, a string of poor performances against Sri Lanka and Australia in the subsequent season forced the selectors to look elsewhere. He was signed by Durham in 2007.
