Philip Andrew Horne
January 21, 1960, Upper Hutt, Wellington
Left hand Bat
Phil Horne never translated good domestic form into international runs, and in four Test appearances averages 10.14 with a top score of 27. A left-hand opening batsman and outstanding cover fielder, he won his first cap - against West Indies in 1986-87 - on the back of 81 against the tourists earlier in the season. New Zealand won the match, but Horne made 9 and 0. He made his one-day debut in the same series - his four ODIs were no more successful than his Test outings - and was included in the 1987 World Cup squad. In 1990-91 he was picked to tour Pakistan, again on the back of a sound domestic record, but scored 38 runs in six innings - including 0 and 12 in his final Test appearance - and he retired at the end of the following season. He also represented New Zealand at badminton during the Commonwealth Games.
