Wisden obituary
Lawrence Somerville Martin Miller, died on December 17, 1996, aged 73. Lawrie Miller was a left-handed batsman who played 13 Tests for New Zealand, not making his debut until just before his 30th birthday. His career was held up because he came from rural Taranaki. He failed to pass 50 in Tests; indeed, in South Africa in 1953-54, he made four successive Test ducks, a sequence ended only by a fairly inglorious two. But he played some important little innings, and his 47 and 25 in the low-scoring match against West Indies at Auckland in 1955-56 were instrumental in securing New Zealand's First Test win. He was often prolific in provincial cricket: at one stage of the 1952-53 season he had scored 397 for Central Districts without being dismissed. Miller latter moved to Wellington. He also played first-class rugby.
