Profile

COLQUHOUN, IAN ALEXANDER, died on February 26, 2005, aged 80, while watching the TV coverage of New Zealand's one-day international against Australia from Auckland. An All-Black rugby triallist, Colquhoun was also an accomplished wicketkeeper for Central Districts for 11 seasons, often standing up to the quicker bowlers. Colquhoun's Test career was short but eventful. Before his debut at Dunedin in 1954-55 he dreamt that he dropped the England captain Len Hutton four times: in the event he managed to catch him cheaply in both innings, which was not enough to stave off an eight-wicket defeat. But the nightmare lay in wait. In the Second Test, at Auckland, New Zealand were shot out for 200 and 26, which remains the lowest Test total. Colquhoun's contribution was a king pair - caught first ball off Bob Appleyard in both innings. He played on for Central Districts until 1963-64; he had a spell as a Test selector, and was president of the New Zealand board from 1989 to 1991. He taught at Palmerston North Boys' High School for 36 years, and over 1,000 people attended a memorial service for him there, the highlight of which was a haka by the rugby team.
