Mark Greatbatch Appreciation Thread



Let's appreciate the beefy and charasmatic Aucklander. A hero of mine from the first game of cricket I ever watched... Mark Greatbatch will forever remain one of the true legends of the game.

Let the love & appreciation flow in.

I'm not sure...

But he now teaches at Giggleswick School in Yorkshire. That's in Harry Potter right?

Giggleswick? Guess I'll be lame and

I just looked up his stats and I find it interesting that although he was a left-handed batter, he actually bowled with his right.

He bowled?

I thought I knew everything about the NZ cricket team from 1994 onwards. :S

He bowled a single over in test cricket, no runs, no wickets!

I think he also once took a wicket in the New Zealand first class comp!
