New Zealand left-hander John F Reid wasn't as famous as his namesake John R, but he had a pretty good career anyway, averaging 46 from 19 Tests between 1978-79 and 1985-86. He had an outstanding conversion rate (six 100s, two 50s). Reid was a serene, orthodox presence at the crease, for whom cricket wasn't the be-all and end-all: when he turned down a tour of the Caribbean in 1984-85, he put teaching (Reid was a geography teacher) above cricket on his list of priorities, although he later became NZC's operations director.
