Profile

Noel Sherwin Harford, who died in Auckland on March 30, 1981, aged 51, played eight times for New Zealand between 1955 and 1958, his double of 93 and 64 in his First Test match, against Pakistan at Lahore, being much his best effort. He was a sparkling (Wisden 1959) driver of the ball, but without a defence to match. He was one of four players to score 1,000 runs on New Zealand's somewhat unsuccessful tour to England in 1958, his 158 in the Parks at Oxford seeing him at his best. He played Plunket Shield cricket for both Central Districts and Auckland. In Test matches he scored 229 runs at an average of 15.26. In all first-class cricket his aggregate was 3,149 runs and his average 27.62.
