Martin Crowe’s 50th Birthday – Highlights From His First Test 100

For my mate Marty Crowe, a spectacularly generous chap who also happens to be New Zealand’s finest ever cricket batsman who celebrated a 50 of another kind today, his 50th birthday. Considering his test cricket 50 to 100 conversion was an outstanding 18:17, I’ll hopefully be posting some more YouTube footage of him in 2062. But until then, enjoy the clip beneath which is highlights from Crowe’s first test hundred back in 1984 against England. The innings is filled with the majestic shots which became famous around the cricket world over the next 10+ years, including a cover drive at the 50 second mark about as perfect as you could wish to see.

    Ah …..[sigh] …. those were the halcyon days. I heard he was on a comeback path last year with an Auckland club. Wonder if he is still pursuing that?
