#4 John Reid

John Reid

It is a well-known fact that a number 4 batsman needs to have an excellent attacking game if he is to succeed in his position and in that regard, former New Zealand batsman John Reid was certainly not lacking in any way.

He played 58 Tests for New Zealand between 1949 and 1965 and out of those, the right-hander batted at number 4 in 35 Test matches.

Reid's stroke-full batting provided New Zealand with an excellent counterattacking batsman in the middle-order in their early years as a Test nation.

In those 35 Test matches, Reid made 1993 runs at an average of just short of 40 and scored 4 centuries, in addition to 13 half-centuries.
