Martin Crowe to make comeback at Age of 48

Former New Zealand captain Martin Crowe is planning a return to first-class cricket after 15 years and sees it as an opportunity score the 392 runs he needs for 20,000 first-class runs besides a way to get fitter. Crowe, 48, will first turn out for the Cornwall Cricket Club before deciding on plans to play for Auckland Central Districts. 'Physically, I am a person who needs more than going to gym. I need to fire myself up. I don't like swimming, cycling, or lifting weights. I can't climb, I can't run; why not bat? It's a serious goal to get fit but it's a fun and light-hearted attempt to see if a 48-year old can play and at what level. Unless you try you will never know,' cricinfo quoted Crowe as saying.
