Warren Hegg, Lancashire's 37-year-old wicketkeeper, has announced that he will retire at the end of the summer.
Hegg, who made his debut for the county in 1986 and went on to win two England caps, was a key member of the Lancashire side that won nine one-day titles between 1989 and 1999. "I've had 20 years at Old Trafford and have played with some great players," he said. "I feel as though I have had a wonderful career."
Hegg has played 326 matches for Lancashire and scored 10,688 runs at 28.12, including seven hundreds, as well as taking 791 catches and 93 stumpings. His two England appearances came on the 1998-99 tour of Australia.
