Profile

Proof were it needed that cricket has changed beyond all recognition in the last half century can be given by the career of Derek Hawkins. In 11 season with Gloucestershire he was a regular in the side and yet his career record as a batsman would not set the world alight - three hundreds from 134 matches and an average of 18.06. It was an era where a decent player could hold down a place for years, especially at a county where budgets were constantly in need of balancing.
