Neither you are in the fray of being selected in the national team nor you want to play international cricket any more, still, you are playing first class cricket for 10 years. Seriously this shows how much you love the game. This man Marcus Trescothick has set an example for other as when other players decided to quit the game after the age of 40, he has signed another season for his county.

The veteran cricketer is currently 40 years old and will be a year older when county begins.

Though Trescothick’s international career was cut down due to depression but that didn’t stop him from playing domestic cricket. Trescothick’s appetite for the runs can is known by the fact that last month he scored tons in three back to back first class matches which include one double century against Notts.

Trescothick in his 6 years of international cricket career played 76 Test matches and 123 ODIs but it is first class cricket who still attracts him.

A veteran of 357 first-class matches has scored exactly 24623 first class runs at an average of 42.45 with 63 centuries and 120 half-centuries to his name. The numbers will cross the 25000 run mark in the upcoming season.

“I have made no secret of my desire to carry on playing for Somerset for as long as I can,

“I’m really enjoying my cricket at the moment and I still have the hunger to succeed. I am delighted that I will be a part of this Club for another year.

“It’s a really exciting time for the County at the moment with the talent that we have coming through and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next 12 months.” said the cricket enthusiast in a statement.

Trescothick is one of few players who are 40 and are still participating in domestic tournaments.
