Profile

John Morrison scored a second-innings century against Australia in his second Test. Thanks to two washed-out days in that match, though, the highlight of his 17-Test career didn't result in a victory. He opened in 10 of his Tests, and batted in the middle order in the rest. He went missing after the third Test against India in Chennai in 1976, but made a comeback in 1982 during the home series against Australia, with little success. Not being picked for the World Cup in 1983 proved to be the end of his international career. Outside international cricket, though, he led Wellington to multiple national titles, and later served as a coach and selector too.
