About John Reid (from Wikipedia Page)
John Richard Reid was a New Zealand cricketer who captained New Zealand in 34 Test matches. He was the country’s first cricketing captain to achieve victory, both at home against the West Indies in 1956, and the first away win, against South Africa in 1962.
Reid started out as a strong and aggressive bowler who, in his early days, was an authentic quick.
He later turned to off-cutters and spin from a short run-up with a trademark side-step. Until a swollen knee slowed down his movements and checked his agility, he was a strong and multi-talented fieldsman at slip and in the covers.
On the 1949 tour of England he was the reserve wicketkeeper, keeping wicket in several matches including the final Test.
“The figures mislead”, said John Mehaffey, whose favourite Reid was. “Nobody who saw him at the crease would dispute his own assessment that he could have increased his batting average by half again if he had played in the 1980s side with Richard Hadlee and Martin Crowe.”
Reid was one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year for 1959.
