Bruce Adrian Edgar (born 23 November, 1956) in Wellington was one of the best batsmen New Zealand has ever produced. In the 1980s, he played 39 Tests and 64 One Day Internationals, altogether he played 175 first-class matches. In internationals,he formed a successful opening partnership with fellow left-hander John Wright.

He was non-striking partner on the pitch for the underarm bowling incident on February 1, 1981, during an ODI between New Zealand and Australia. His striking partner, Brian McKechnie, needed a six to tie the match from the final ball. Australian bowler Trevor Chappell, on orders from the team captain, older brother Greg Chappell, bowled the ball underarm, rolling it on the ground to prevent McKechnie from getting the six and lock the match up for Australia.

The unfortunate part of the incident was that, at the time, Edgar was 102 not-out for the innings. It is often considered "the most overlooked century of all time."
