Former New Zealand Test batsman Lou Vincent took to social media to call time on his first-class cricket career spanning 16 years.
“1134 games in 718.5 hotels 834 planes 57 teams 3 punch ups 1 proud career 5pm 18th Feb 2013 I’m pulling stumps. Thank you all,” Vincent said on Twitter on Monday.
Vincent, who made 104 in his New Zealand Test debut against Australia in Perth in late 2001, averaged 34.15 in 23 Tests.
His Test high of 224 came against Sri Lanka at the Basin Reserve in Wellington in April 2005 and he played his final Test against South Africa in November 2007.
Vincent, 34, played 102 one-day internationals for New Zealand, collecting three centuries topped by a 172-run effort against Zimbabwe in mid-2005.
After retiring from international cricket, Vincent played in England for Lancashire, Northamptonshire and Sussex, and built a career playing Twenty20 cricket in India and Bangladesh.
