Daniel Kyle Morrison (born 3 February 1966) is a former New Zealand cricketer. He is a pace bowler with a useful out swinger. He made his test debut for New Zealand at the age of 21 against Australia, in 1987His most notable bowling accomplishment occurred on 25 March 1994, when he took a hat trick in a 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. During the final stride of the delivery his bowling arm used to displace air behind the umpire in such a manner that it would make umpire’s shirt flutter. Daniel 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. Daniel Morrison was often subjected to good natured ridicule regarding this from his teammates and the general public due to his feeble efforts. This went as far as a tie being manufactured in 1996 featuring numerous ducks to celebrate his world record. He is sometimes referred to as "The Duck man" and also launched a duck caller for hunters on the back of his record. 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 is now a television commentator and analyst.
