Neil McKenzie retires from all forms of Cricket 

Former Proteas batsman Neil McKenzie bid adieu to all forms of cricket after scoring an unbeaten double century for the Highveld Lions as the Highveld Lions revelled in their innings and 51 runs battering of the warriors in Cape Town on Sunday.

McKenzie who has been an unlucky player throughout his career, consistently losing his place to the likes of Herschelle Gibbs and Graeme Smith, has been bestowed with a 20 year long journey in Cricket, averaging 45.77 in first class cricket, scoring 51 tons in his mammoth 19,041 runs.

He was named one of the five wisden players of the year for his away series form in England, being honoured with a 125 year old tradition.

McKenzie experienced a lacklustre international career,playing 58 test matches for the Proteas, averaging 37.39, thus scoring 3253 runs.

He also represented South Africa in 64 ODIs, scoring 1688 runs at an average of 37.51 . Though he could never cement his place in the limited overs team. But in Test matches , he played an important part in reviving the Test Cricket of South Africa under Graeme Smith , when he started to open the innings along with Graeme Smith.
