WOW!!

Our former 43!!!! years old, still playing in Big Bash, looks as fit as a butcher's dog, bowling and fielding top drawer.

He must be the oldest player playing top class cricket in the world?

Is it really nearly a decade since he was an integral part of our championship wining side?

Excellent player, shame he didn't stay with us a couple of seasons longer.

He would have been great in t20 for us. Still would!

To be fair at the time his main impact on Championship cricket were his quick runs at number 7. He bowled well for us in t20 but at that time there was still only one overseas player allowed across all formats. And we clearly needed someone to make a bowling impact in Championship.

Hogg would have been a good second overseas player just for t20 since they changed the overseas ruling. But overall would prefer Jeetan Patel across all formats.

Indeed... but in 2004, that was the way the championship was won :)

43 years and 45 days and in 2020 world cup.


Oldest international player I can recall.


I thought 2020 was meant to be a young man's game!!

Wilfred Rhodes was 52 when he last played for England - but those were different times.
One of the greatest all-rounders ever, he had a trial with Warwickshire as a young man but was turned down. Oh, well, you can't get them all right.

From Wikipedia:
"In response to an advertisement, Rhodes applied to join the groundstaff of Warwickshire County Cricket Club, but the club were unable to offer him an engagement for financial reasons."
They were probably spending all their money on the new pavilion which was being built at around that time. I could have told them that it would only end up getting knocked down whereas Wilfred Rhodes still holds the world records both for the most appearances made in first-class cricket (1,110 matches), and for the most wickets taken (4,204). He completed the double of 1,000 runs and 100 wickets in an English cricket season a record 16 times - for Yorkshire, not Warwickshire.

Sensational autobiographies seem to be the order of the day in Australia and here's another one, this time from ex-Bear Brad Hogg:
