Marge Bishop

Born on 3rd January 1910 in Christchurch, Canterbury, Marge Bishop is a former Test cricketer for New Zealand who played just one Test.

Marge has the distinction of playing in the White Ferns first Test match, against Betty Archdale’s England team in February 1935. She has the unhappy record of scoring New Zealand’s second ever duck, after Hilda Buck, when the team was bowled out for 44 in the first innings.

However, Marge top scored in the second innings with 27, and this would remain the highest individual score for New Zealand in Test cricket for over thirteen years. Marge tragically passed away at the age of 50 in 1960.
