              The Team That Never Played: Wahine and the 1968 Otago University Cricket Team
               

              The Team That Never Played: Wahine and the 1968 Otago University Cricket Team (Hardback)

              For the Otago University cricket team the start of the Easter holiday break of 1968 had the players at a high level of anticipation as they boarded their ship at Lyttleton. Ahead was a social journey to Palmerston North accompanied by players from Canterbury and Lincoln Universit...ies, followed by glorious days of tournament cricket. As the eleven players stepped on board none could foresee that by the end of the voyage fifty-one of their fellow passengers would be dead. Nor, that not a ball would be bowled in Palmerston North. The Team That Never Played is the story of those eleven Otago players, their frightening experience on TEV Wahine, and what became of their lives in the forty-five years since that fateful journey. After forty-five years the Wahine tragedy, according to a TVNZ viewers' poll, remains the fourth-largest television news story in New Zealand. Despite its wide coverage, there remain many inconsistencies and myths surrounding the ferry's sinking - and many stories to be told. This publication offers a unique perspective on the greatest shipping disaster of the twentieth century in New Zealand from the members of the Otago University cricket team. They, along with others involved in the rescue efforts or present in Wellington that day, have provided, in some cases, never-before-told accounts of the events of 10 April 1968.

              Bevan Congdon was a fine all-rounder for New Zealand whose game flourished when given the responsibility of leadership. He captained New Zealand from 1972 to 1974 and played 61 Tests for his country. 'Congo', as he was known to his team-mates, had wonderful concentration, courag...e and over time built his technique to counter the best bowlers. Born in Motueka, a short distance from Nelson in the South Island of New Zealand, Congdon's career hit many peaks. There was the outstanding series in the West Indies in 1972; his contribution of 176 against England in 1973 at Trent Bridge, still considered an innings for the ages; followed by the distinction of leading New Zealand to their first Test win over Australia. Behind all of this there was the considered family man, and this is his story. kind and contemplating. He was in many ways 'A Singular Man'
