View Full Version : Graeme Hick joins the ICL

November 1, 2008, 04:23 PM
Graeme Hick, the former England and Worcestershire batsman, has joined the Indian Cricket League. He will be a part of the Chandigarh Lions and will play their remaining matches this season.
Hick had ended his 25-year county career two months ago at the end of the 2008 season. He is the second highest run-scorer in all cricket (first-class and limited-overs combined), with more than 64,000 runs, and his tally of 136 hundreds is eighth on the all-time list.
"I am greatly honoured to be associated with the ICL and hope to do my best for them," Hick said. He played 37 Twenty20 matches in his county career, and scored two hundreds and ten half-centuries.
Chandigarh lost two of their key players earlier this week when their regular captain Chris Cairns and Dinesh Mongia were suspended (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/newzealand/content/story/375586.html) on disciplinary grounds. Chandigarh are currently in fifth place with three matches to go in the round-robin phase.

Injury that causes his retirement from county cricket could not stop him to have some social cricket at ICL... !! I love to see these players getting some $$$ at this old age... ICL doing great for cricket in this way.....

I don't care if ICL bring all great oldies from different country.please don't offer or try to snatch any of our national player.

People will gradually keep joining and the ICL issue will also be resolved. It's a matter of time. There are many retired players in IPL, infact the current players even didn't play half of the tournament last time. Aus, NZ, SA, SL all left and they were left with more miserable situation than IPL. Atleast IPL players are fixed and not coming and going like 'kheyper' player.
