Grant Bradburn, a tall, offspinner and lower-order batsman, played for Northern Districts for 16 seasons. His international career seemed over when he was left out of the New Zealand side after the 1992-93 series in Sri Lanka, but he was recalled in 2000-01 at the age of 35, although without any great success. In all, he played seven Test matches and 11 One-Day Internationals and ended his career as the player with most appearances for Northern Districts with 115 matches, 4614 runs at an average of 27.96.
After retirement he ran a family sports store along with coaching Northern Districts A. When Andy Moles was appointed the New Zealand coach in 2008, Bradburn filled the spot left by him as Northern Districts coach, leading them to the Plunket Shield in 2012. He subsequently took charge of New Zealand U-19s between 2013 and 2014, before being named as Scotland's new head coach ahead of their World Cup campaign.
