Daniel Kyle Morrison is a former New Zealand cricketer. He specialised as a pace bowler with a useful outswinger. He made his test debut for New Zealand in 1987 at the age of 21 against Australia.
His most notable bowling accomplishment occurred on 25 March 1994, when he took a hat-trick in a One Day International (ODI) against India. He is one of only two New Zealanders and twenty-one players worldwide to have taken an ODI hat-trick. He is fondly remembered by his fans for his big grin and his unique bowling action.
Morrison’s most notable “accomplishment” as a batsman is that he once held the world record for Test ducks. Of the 48 Tests he played, he was dismissed without scoring in 24 innings. His most famous innings was when he contributed 14 in a 106-run partnership with Nathan Astle for the tenth wicket against England, to save the match. This occurred in his final test appearance for the national team on 28 January 1997. He was dropped from the team after the match.
