Rodney Redmond scored 107 and 56 in his only two Test innings for New Zealand

How about scoring a century and a half-century in your first ever Test match for your country and never playing another one again? Well, that's the story of Rodney Redmond who scored 107 and 56 against Pakistan at Auckland in his debut Test in 1973.

That match was the third and final Test of the series and New Zealand's next international assignment saw them heading to England later that year but Redmond was unable to fulfil the heightened expectations as he struggled for form, unable to adjust to the new contact lenses that he had to put on.

He played only two ODIs during the tour and was not picked for any of the Test matches and was dropped from the team.

Redmond failed to stage a comeback and retired from first-class and List A cricket at the end of the 1975/76 season.
