Hick hits milestone at Taunton

Zimbabwean born Graeme Hick who turned 40 last month, showed he still had the knack of making runs when he made 151 not out for Worcestershire against Somerset yesterday.

This was Hick’s 129th century and he joined Sir Jack Hobbs and Graham Gooch in being only the third player in history to score 60,000 runs in all forms of cricket.

Hick was described, as “Worcestershire’s 21 year old batting prodigy” when in 1988 he burst onto the county cricket scene making 405 not out also against Somerset at Taunton. This innings was the highest innings in England at that time since Archie MacLaren’s 424 for Lancashire in 1895, also at Taunton.
