Ken Hough, who died at his home in Queensland at the age of 80, was a right-arm pace bowler who played two Tests for New Zealand against England in 1958-59, taking six wickets, after unluckily missing out on a place in the tour party which visited England earlier in the year.

In 1959-60 he grabbed 12 for 146 against Central Districts, and in the same season made a career-best 91 against Otago.

Hough also played football for New Zealand as a goalkeeper, making five appearances for them in August and September 1958. His debut came against Australia, who he had already represented in an international.
