Profile

Ross Morgan was a dependable batsman whose favoured clipping the ball through midwicket. He was also an offspinner with a memorable skipping and hopping approach. He made 66 on debut against Pakistan at Auckland in 1964-65 and followed with a career-best 97 at Christchurch. A good tour of India later that season followed but thereafter he struggled - his next 22 Test innings producing only 287 runs. His final series was in West Indies in 1971-72 where in three Tests he scored 8 runs and took one wicket.
