A Century of Centuries

Graeme Hick
Graeme Hick was my childhood sporting hero. I was born in the city of Worcester and, although I only lived there for a couple of months, my identification with my county of origin was kept strong, in large part through my support of Worcestershire County Cricket Club. Hick has just joined an elite group of cricketers who have scored 100 tons for a single county. I wasn’t planning on posting anything more before I left, but I felt that I just had to post this.

    100 tons of what? ;-}

    Help a perplexed Yank out here.

    Where does one go to get a down-to-earth explanation of just what the heck cricket is, and how it is played?!?

    A ton is an individual score of 100 or more.

    You can find a basic introduction to cricket here. A fuller explanation can be found here. Good luck! 🙂
