An English team raised by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) toured New Zealand between December 1906 and March 1907. The tour comprised two first-class matches against New Zealand, two each against the four main provincial teams – Auckland, Canterbury, Otago and Wellington – and one against Hawke's Bay.[1] There were also five minor matches against teams from country areas.

The team[edit]

The team, which consisted entirely of amateurs, most of them young and inexperienced, was captained by Teddy Wynyard and included future Test players like Johnny Douglas and George Simpson-Hayward.

The team took their own umpire with them, John Moss, who officiated in all their matches, sharing the duties with a local official.
