World’s most-capped cricketer heads for masters
MOSMAN PARK resident Andrew Walton will be travelling to Birmingham to take part in the 2016 Indoor Cricket Masters World Series to be run from October 2129.
It will be the seasoned cricketer’s 10th and final World Series for his career, with him set to pull the plug on competitive cricket at its completion.
Walton, who has played indoor cricket for Zimbabwe, England and Australia, is currently the most capped player in the world in the sport.
The 51-year-old said he believed now was the right time to retire.
“I’m going back to where it all started in England,” he said. “I feel like it’s the right time, to finish on a good note. This sport has taken me all around the world and has helped me meet many people.”
