Profile

Vaughan Brown was a New Zealand offspinner whose only Test wicket cost Richard Hadlee a ten-for. In the first Test against Australia at Brisbane in 1985-86, a rampant Hadlee had taken the first eight wickets to fall when Brown had Geoff Lawson well caught in the deep ... by Hadlee himself. Frank Keating described it as the catch of the century, not so much for the catch itself (though it was eminently droppable) but because, with Dave Gilbert (Test average: 7) and Bob Holland (3) at Nos 10 and 11, Hadlee was well set to become only the second bowler to take all ten in a Test innings, after Jim Laker (Anil Kumble later achieved the feat against Pakistan at Delhi in 1998-99). Brown was also the first winner of the New Zealand Cricket Council's Young Player to Lord's scholarship, in 1979, although he had to return after injuring his neck in a car accident.
