    Same here, a true legend of the game, he will be sorely missed. Will go alongside Gilchrist and Ames, as one of the great Wicket-keeper batsmen.

    I'm sure Nixon will talk about it for years to come.

    And years.

    And years.

    And years.

    Southafrica:

    2)Jaquesous Kallis: He has played in 1996,1999,2003
    3)Mark Boucher: He has Played in 1996,1999,2003,


    Are you sure Pollock played in 1992? He'd have still been in shorts, surely?
    As for England, it must tell us something that only 4 of the current side played in 2003, and none in 1999. I think.

    Pollock certainly didn't play in 1992. And for us, the earliest debutant who is "still around" so to speak is Flintoff, from 1998\99. He did play in WC99, but you might be forgiven for wishing he hadn't.

    I'm finding it hard to beleive that Mark Boucher would thinkin about retiring, given the fact he is only 30.

    I had forgotten that. Presumably he didn't hand around against SA & India.
