Former New Zealand skipper Martin Crowe is all set to be inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame during the World Cup match between New Zealand and Australia at Eden Park, Auckland on Saturday.
Crowe will be the third cricketer after India’s Anil Kumble and and Australia’s Betty Wilson to get inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame in the ongoing 2015 World Cup. Crowe was the first man to be awarded the Player of the Tournament in the World Cups when he got it in the 1992 edition in Australia and New Zealand and currently he is fighting a relapse of a rare blood cancer disease.
During the innings break Martin Crowe will receive his commemorative cap from ICC Director and Chairman of Cricket Australia Wally Edwards. After that, Crowe will become the third cricketer from New Zealand after Sir Richard Hadlee and Debbie Hockley to be inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame. Overall, he will become the 79th inductee.
