Profile

Lewis Hatchett achieved one of the most gloriously defiant careers in the history of county cricket before he announced his retirement, at 26, on medical advice in 2016. Hatchett was born with Poland Syndrome, a condition which appears in only one in 100,000 births, and leads to problems down one side of the body. For Hatchett it meant he was missing his right pectoral muscle and two ribs, which meant that his chest was visibly sunken on that part of his body. Technically, as a fast-medium left-arm bowler, it led to a weak delivery arm and a right shoulder that sat higher than his left. His right shoulder muscles overcompensated for the missing pectoral, causing these muscles to be over-used and they become fatigued quickly, resulting in aches, burning sensations and headaches daily along with his right chest offering little protection to his right lung.
