Hick joins elite few

Former England Test batsman Graeme Hick has joined an elite band of English County cricketers to notch 100 centuries for the one side.

In making 139 for Worcestershire against Northamptonshire on Thursday, 40-year-old Hick became the eighth player to have achieved the feat.

"It was a special day for me. There's quite a lot of people who have sat here for many years and hopefully enjoyed my batting and it's been a good day for them as well," said Hick, who averaged a tick over 31 in 65 Tests for England.

"To get the hundredth hundred for Worcestershire here at New Road adds a bit to it."

Hick's ton helped his side reach 9-543 before a declaration.

The century brings Zimbabwean-born Hick up to 130 first-class hundreds in total - in eighth position all-time.

England legend Sir Jack Hobbs holds the record with 197 first-class centuries.
