« on: September 13, 2018, 10:09:17 AM »

The end of a career for another legend.
Paul Collingwood has announced he will retire from all cricket at the end of the season

The first player to take 6 wickets and score a hundred in the same ODI
3 Ashes wins
Captained England to their world T20 win
10 Test hundreds with a best of 206

Happy retirement Colly, thanks for the memories

Next Scotland coach I wonder. Bradburn has just left and Colly has been involved before.

for those who like stats , and there are a few, averaged over 40 in test cricket
like Cook made the most of his ability and was a fighter

I do not fear correction from this powerful forum when I say England fans would have him back in todays test side by giving their right arm away.

Interesting point this. It would be a struggle to fit him in our insane middle order! He would have to bat 3.
And would probably do it well enough.

Solid dependable player, would do anything for the team. Average of 40, absolute gun in the field and got enough players out with his medium pace.

the blocathon against south Africa and at Cardiff...which never gets mentioned because it was Anderson and Panesar getting Ponting's blood going......live long in the memory

plus the catch off hayden in the one dayers

where he might bat in todays team is an interesting question posed by Buzz, leg sided technique but still managed a healthy average...

if your best technically correct players bat top 4 he's not in, for attitude and determination he is..

either way, a very very good all rounder cricketer

My absolute cricketing hero.

Agree with previous comments - would have loved to have seen him still playing for England, he'd have found a way to get by just on sheer force of will

I hope we get him in at Durham although I fear England may come knocking after not too long

Actually I take that back, no one at the ECB would have the sense to appoint him
