Edgar Milton Meuli (born 20 February 1926, Hawera, Taranaki, died 15 April 2007, in Auckland) was a New Zealand cricketer who played in one Test in 1953.

Domestic career[edit]

Ted Meuli was a right-handed batsman and occasional leg-spin bowler who made his first-class debut in 1945-46, playing three games for Auckland. His next first-class matches were in 1950-51 for Central Districts when they made their first appearance in the Plunket Shield. He spent the rest of his career, which finished in 1959-60, with Central Districts. He also played for Taranaki in the non-first-class Hawke Cup from 1946-47 to 1968-69.

In the Plunket Shield in 1952-53 he made 317 runs at 52.83, including 154 against Auckland, batting at number three, out of a team total of 319 in a low-scoring match that Central Districts won by an innings.[1] A week earlier he had taken 6 for 67 against Otago.[2]

He hit one more century, in 1956-57 against Northern Districts, once again in a low-scoring match that Central Districts won by an innings.[3] It was the first century scored against Northern Districts, who were playing their first season in the Plunket Shield.

International career[edit]

He was selected in the team for the First Test against South Africa in Wellington, making 15 and 23 batting in the middle order, and not bowling, although South Africa's innings lasted 174 overs.[4] He was one of five players who lost their places for the Second Test; along with Eric Fisher, the Wellington Test was his sole appearance for New Zealand.
