South African cricket

Remembering Hansie Cronje

Carlyle Laurie

Rohan Kallicharan, writing for All out cricket, recalls childhood memories of time spent with Hansie Cronje, ten years after the former South Africa captain’s death.

Even aged 18, he was an imposing figure – tall and lean – but I found him, like the rest of the family, to be cut from the finest cloth. Humble, personable and thoughtful. A truly nice guy. He was a shy but very friendly individual, different in some ways to the slightly more outgoing brother Frans.
