Hero’s Exit for Cairns

Chris Cairns retired from international Test cricket with a bang on the Black Caps tour of England. In the second Test he beat Viv Richards’ previous record of 84 Test sixes, knocking four sixes and 10 fours in his 82-run innings. On the last day of the third Test – his birthday – Cairns was agonizingly close to a 10-wicket haul. As it was, he took 12 wickets in the series – double the amount of any other NZ bowler on the tour. Cairns will continue to play one-day internationals.
