Who is Bryan Yuile?

Bryan William Yuile is a cricketer. He played 17 Test Matches for the New Zealand national team in the 1960s. His career spanned from 1959 to 1971, until a religious objection to playing on Sunday led to the end of his promising career.

Yuile was a left-arm spin bowler and middle-to-lower-order batsman. He played for Central Districts from 1959-60 to 1971-72, and toured South Africa in 1961-62 and England, India and Pakistan in 1965 and 1969 with the New Zealand team.

In 1962-63 he took 7 for 36 against Otago. He made his Test debut against England in the First Test in Auckland later that season, taking the wicket of Ted Dexter and top-scoring for New Zealand with 64 in the first innings, which remained his highest Test score. His best Test figures came in the Second Test against Pakistan in Auckland in 1964-65, when he dismissed four of the first five batsmen and finished with 4 for 43 off 54 overs.

In 1965-66 he took 9 for 100 for Central Districts against Canterbury. The previous season he had taken 3 for 33 and 7 for 54 against Northern Districts. His highest first-class score and only century was 146 against Canterbury in 1967-68.
