"HOGAN" IS OUT.




Martin D Crowe, 'Hogan', New Zealand cricket's finest Batsman yields to Lymphona after a fight that mirrored his batting. Death had to wait.

A player who was always thinking, often outside the square.
His ploy to open the bowling in a world cup series with spinner Dipak Patel was inspired and successful

An awesome record with the bat, a more than useful change bowler delivering medium paced deliveries until his knees let him down, and a popular inspiring  successful skipper.

Many great memories Hogan, rest easy, and if there is a Cricket Club to welcome you I warrant Bradman, Benaud, Greig, and many others will welcome you to their company,  you were right up there with all of them.

One NZ batsman who deserves to be called Great - would bat at 4 in my best ever NZ team.
