England in NZ 1996 - Bunny Morrison stars
Danny Morrison and Nathan Astle celebrate their match-saving partnership
England should have wrapped up the first Test of the 1996 series when full-time rabbit Danny Morrison joined Nathan Astle for the final wicket in Auckland.

Instead Morrison - a man who made 24 ducks in a 48-Test career - dabbed and prodded for 133 pain-staking deliveries in the final session at Eden Park to eke out an unlikely draw.

"My batting is a bit of a joke and has deteriorated since I left high school," said a stoked Morrison after the match.

Unsurprisingly, Mike Atherton's side were ridiculed for their inability to dismiss Test cricket's worst batsman.
