Wisden obituary
Norman Gallichan, who died at Taupo, New Zealand, on March 25, aged 62, played in one Test match for New Zealand. A slow left-arm bowler who stood over six feet, he was called upon after the original fourteen players for the 1937 tour of England had been selected, and though he rarely encountered helpful conditions, he took 59 wickets in first-class games for 23.92 runs each. Against Scotland at Glasgow, he earned first-innings figures of six wickets for 46 runs and in the match with Minor Counties at Gainsborough analyses of five for 52 and five for 20. He took part in the second Test with England at Old Trafford, scoring 30 and 2 and taking three wickets. Most of his cricket in New Zealand was for Manawatu in the Hawke Cup competition, in which he dismissed 177 batsmen for 11.59 runs apiece and, as a right-handed batsman, hit 1,409 runs with a highest innings of 142 and an average of 32.76. Though rarely chosen to assist Wellington in Plunket Shield fixtures, he appeared in 1928 for New Zealand against V. Y. Richardson's Australian XI at Auckland.
