TEAMS

Bruce Edgar was a left-hand opening batsman who played with assurance against the fastest of bowling in a classically straight manner. He made a solid debut against England in 1978, even wicketkeeping in the final match at Lord's, and continued to impress with a maiden hundred in his first Test against Pakistan in 1978-79, ending that season with another century against West Indies. He made up for a relatively disappointing tour of Australia in 1980-81 by scoring 161 at Auckland the following season, the basis for a New Zealand victory. He was solid rather than spectacular in home and away series against England in 1983 and 1983-84 but lost his form in 1984-85 against Pakistan and with it his place. Recalled to tour Australia, he scored three fifties in his first four innings, but thereafter struggled, and retired after a disappointing third tour of England in 1986, still shy of his 30th birthday. He is a chartered accountant by profession.
