Profile

Father Mark Albert Beban, SM, collapsed and died on the 16th fairway of the Wainuiomata golf course in Wellington, New Zealand, on April 4, 2005, aged 65. He played four times for Wellington as a bespectacled purveyor of brisk offspin in 1969-70, not long after being ordained as a Catholic priest. In his final match, against Auckland - when his five wickets included the future Test opener Rodney Redmond, twice - one of the umpires was the Rev. David Bindon.
