The game lost one of its most precious assets in form of Matin Crowe, when the former New Zealand skipper died on March 3 at an early age of 53. Considered as one of the finest Kiwi batsmen of all time, Crowe was suffering from lymphoma since 2012 and lost the battle after putting up a brave fight for around four years.

He made his against Australia aged 19 in 1982 and represented New Zealand in 77 Tests and 143 ODIs before taking a premature retirement from the game in 1995 due to a knee injury. He worked as a television commentator then. In 2011, the batting great made a miraculous return to the cricket field at the age of 48 and played for local club Cornwall. Crowe was inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame during the ICC World Cup 2015.

An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
