Last of the Valiants

Graeme Hick retires! An era ends.

The last of the Rhodesians, the valiants, the cricketers who played the game has retired. Now, there's no more.

Why did Hick leave Zimbabwe? Yes, he has the county records. But no international lustre. With him and Andy Flower, Zimbabwe could have taken those last steps as well, since it was always the only weak point of Zim. Would also have sent Hick to better immortality than being just Ray Illingworth's undeserved, most rashly selected victim-in-chief.
