TEAMS

Of Western Samoan parents, left-arm fast-medium bowler Murphy Su'a's career came alive after two medicocre seasons with Northern Districts when he moved to Auckland. In his first season (1990-91) he grabbed 28 wickets in nine matches, winning his Test call-up against England the following summer when he took eight wickets in two games. That was followed by successful tours to Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka, and a Test-best 5 for 73 against Pakistan at Hamilton in January 1993. But thereafter he struggled, taking 5 for 434 in four Tests against Australia, and drifted out of the reckoning. His cause was not helped by mood swings and clashes with some senior members of the side.
