TEAMS

Slow left-armer and middle-order left-hand batsman Mark 'Popeye' Priest made three Test appearances over seven years, as well as playing 18 one-dayers, but was never able to reproduce the form which had made him so useful at domestic level. Much was expected of him when he toured England in 1990, but his haul of 14 wickets was a disappointing return. He continued to perform solidly for Canterbury, but infrequent returns to the national team were brief and unproductive. He finally retired at the end of the 1998-99 season, shortly after taking his 300th first-class wicket.
