He had a first innings average of 68.41, but a second innings average of only 12.09, a difference of more than 56 runs.[4][5][6]

John Reid played an important part in New Zealand’s first test win over Australia in Australia in 1985. He scored 108 runs and combined with Martin Crowe for a third wicket stand of 284. Richard Hadlee said of Reid “His contribution was quite significant … those two put the game firmly in our control and gave us a significant lead that allowed us to win that first ever test in Australia”.[7]

John Reid ‘s cousin is former Australian cricketer Bruce Reid.[3]

John Wright described him as “a person he was a good team man. He was a quiet achiever. He was always constant. Dependable. Reliable. Astute”[8]
