Danny MORRISON - New Zealand - International Test Cricket Career for New Zealand.


Danny Morrison, a small man for a fast bowler, came into the New Zealand side to share the new ball with Sir Richard Hadlee. He then had the unenviable tasking of taking over as his country's spearhead when the great man retired but injury restricted his appearances in the latter part of his career. He had been playing for Auckland for just one season when he was chosen to tour Sri Lanka in 1986-87. In Australia in 1987-88 he took 4-86 on his first appearance against Australia, then 5-69 against England at Christchurch, also in 1987-88. Morrison's best performances came in the mid 1990s. He took 7-89 against Australia in Wellington in 1992-93 and 6-37 in the following Test in Auckland when New Zealand won by five wickets. He took 6-96 against the West Indies in Christchurch in 1995-96, and 5-61 on the batsman friendly wicket at St.John's in Antigua in the return series. He was in the New Zealand side which toured England in 1994 but broke down in the ODIs which preceded the Test Series. Despite being noted for his inability to score in many Test innings he batted through the last session to deny England victory in his last Test. He played in three World Cups, although he played only one match against India in 1986. In l992 he appeared in the semi-final and took 3-42 against Pakistan in Christchurch. He played one season in England's county championship in 1992, topping the bowling averages for Lancashire with 36 wickets at 33.58. (Bob Harragan)
