A tall right-arm off-spin bowler and lower-order batsman, Bradburn played seven Test matches and eleven One Day Internationals between 1990 and 2001. He also played domestically for Northern Districts for 16 seasons.
His international career seemed over when he was left out of the New Zealand side after the 1992/93 series in Sri Lanka, but he was recalled in 2000/01 at the age of 35 although without any great success. In all, he played seven Test matches and 11 One-Day Internationals and ended his career as the player with most appearances for Northern Districts with 115 matches with 4614 runs at an average of 27.96.
After retirement he ran a family sports store along with coaching Northern Districts A. When Andy Moles was appointed the New Zealand coach in 2008, Bradburn filled the spot left by him as Northern Districts coach for the rest of the season. He was also head coach of New Zealand A and the Under-19 side.
Bradburn's appointment is until the end of 2017 and takes in the next Intercontinental Cup which will give one Associate nation a shot at playing Test cricket as well as the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 in India.
