Profile

Johannesburg-born but based in Wellington, Grant Elliott left his native South Africa in 2001 looking for new horizons, and found them in March 2008 when he was named in New Zealand's 13-man squad for the first Test against England at Hamilton. He won his first Test cap in the final Test after Jacob Oram picked up an injury, but struggled to make an impression with one wicket and two batting failures. Six months earlier, having completed his residency qualification, he was handed a place in the 30-man preliminary squad for the World T20, but missed the final cut.
