Robert William Trevor Key (born 12 May 1979) is an English former cricketer and cricket commentator who played international cricket in all formats for England and domestic cricket for Kent County Cricket Club. He is the current managing director of the England Cricket team.
Key became Kent captain following the 2006 English cricket season, following David Fulton's resignation. He led Kent to a County Championship 2nd Division Championship title in 2010, two Twenty20 Cup Finals Day appearances and a Friends Provident Trophy final. He resigned as Kent captain following the 2012 English cricket season and James Tredwell became club captain. Key only had one season off as captain as Tredwell then himself resigned and Key was named as his replacement, captaining the county for another two years until the end of the 2015 season.
Following the winter international series in South Africa, Key returned to domestic action with Kent. While not having as successful a season as in the previous year, he still scored over 1,500 runs. This included two centuries in the same match against Surrey, during the second of which he shared a county third-wicket record partnership of 323 with Martin van Jaarsveld. At the end of the season, Key was named the new county captain following the resignation of David Fulton, a role he took on in order to help his chances of regaining a place in the England side.
His first season as captain saw his form slide, as Kent's chairman of cricket Graham Johnson related at the end of the season: "His commitment to the team has probably impacted on his own form". Nonetheless, he was given the captaincy of the England A team in their fixture against Pakistan, and led Kent to fifth place in the top tier of the County Championship. The following season saw Key lead Kent to silverware, whilst returning to some of his best form. He struck a total of eight centuries, and amassed a total of 2,267 runs in all competitions, whilst also leading Kent to the finals day of the 2007 Twenty20 Cup, in which Kent defeated Sussex and Gloucestershire to claim the trophy. However, Key was later found guilty of "serious dissent" following his controversial dismissal in the final.
Key briefly returned to international cricket for the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 competition, playing his only Twenty20 International match against the Netherlands during the tournament as a replacement for the injured Kevin Pietersen. He scored 10 not out from eight balls in a match where the Netherlands successfully chased their target from the final ball.
Greig commentated for Channel Four in the United Kingdom, the SABC when making occasional trips home, and for Sky Sports' coverage of England's 2012 tour of Sri Lanka. He also hosted a regular weekly podcast called The Tony Greig Show for Cricinfo, covering international cricket matters and airing his forthright views in a section called "What's eating Tony Greig this week?". His love of the game may be encapsulated by a comment he made on Cricinfo in mid-2012: "Give your hand to cricket and it will take you on the most fantastic journey, a lifetime journey both on and off the field."
Imran Khan had been convinced by the President of Pakistan to come out of retirement for the tour to the West Indies. After suffering a 5-0 thrashing in the One-day internationals this had begun to look like an unwise decision. Pakistan however had won the first test by 9 wickets. Buoyed up by this success, Imran and Wasim Akram both ignored advice to rest injuries in the hope that they would wrap up a series victory. Pakistan won the toss and sent the West Indies out to bat. The West Indians had a mediocre innings with slight flourishes in the middle order. Pakistan failed to build on their advantage due to some strong bowling from Malcolm Marshall and Winston Benjamin. Imran Khan then took four wickets. In the second innings with the West Indies struggling on 81 the series looked all but over. Viv Richards came into bat and survived a caught behind appeal, much to the Pakistani captain.s anger. This incident spurred Richards on to 123, which put Pakistan on the back foot. On the first ball of the last over Saleem Yousuf was out l.b.w. and it looked as if the West Indies might take the victory. However, Abdul Qadir survived the last 5 balls to draw the match.
Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Friday became the first player in world cricket to captain a team in 300 T20 games across various competitions during his side's IPL summit clash against Kolkata Kight Riders here.
\"It's been a long time. We started T20 in around 2005-06 and most of the games have been franchise cricket and in the last five years there have been a lot of T20 games in international cricket as well,\" Dhoni said at the toss.
"It's been a long time. We started T20 in around 2005-06 and most of the games have been franchise cricket and in the last five years there have been a lot of T20 games in international cricket as well," Dhoni said at the toss.
But the man himself, who has gone from being the youngest South African skipper in Test history to the most capped, said that was far from the truth."I think the best way to explain it is, when I took over the captaincy at 22 in 2003 there were so many doomsayers saying it was the wrong decision - 'He's still trying to prove himself in the world of cricket, he's just 22, how can he be captain?"' the now 27-year-old said."There were so many critics and so, for me, it was all about proving everybody wrong."It was about going out and performing. It was about performance, taking the bull by the horns, showing that I could handle the job."Showing that I could handle the pressure. Showing that I could score runs."Everything was about 100 per cent go. Maybe that came across as in your face, as trying to be too strong and trying to show everybody that I could handle it."I think it was the nature of the beast, getting the job at 22."Within the squad and behind closed doors I was a lot more relaxed but, in the public eye, it was important to me to show that I was strong enough to handle everything."But now that I'm a little older and a lot more relaxed and chilled out, I think I probably still carry a bit of that image from 22 or 23."Some people like that aspect but there are also a lot of critics. People can't possibly know the real person behind the image they see on TV. That is the misunderstanding."While there may have been some misunderstanding, Smith certainly has developed as a man and skipper in recent years and learnt to curb some of his controversial ways.That has come from experience of dealing with tough times on a personal and team level, such as the 5-0 pounding Australia gave the Proteas in six home-and-away Tests in 2005-06.Smith struggled with the bat during that campaign, regularly fumbling around his front pad, and with the intense spotlight he turned on himself for trash-talking the world champions through the press.That had been a premeditated tactic to try to distract attention from some of his teammates, supposedly freeing them up to play their natural game while encouraging the yappers in the Australian side to direct their vitriol at him.Smith, after all, had been welcomed into Test cricket in 2002-03 with a now infamous Matthew Hayden spray at Cape Town when he was forcefully told he had no right to be facing up to the legend that was Shane Warne.Smith had been determined to fight back, but his bullish plan didn't work. He conceded to Australian captain Ricky Ponting once the 3-0 thrashing in South Africa was complete that the verbal warfare had backfired.It was after that third and final Test in Johannesburg that Ponting asked Smith whether he intended to also reignite his sledging battle with then New Zealand skipper Stephen Fleming, a man who had humiliated Smith a couple of years earlier."No it won't happen. I've learnt my lesson," Smith said.That Smith had been quick to acknowledge his mistake said much about the man.While that bold gamble failed, it showed he was prepared to do whatever it took to help usher his team through what was then a rebuilding period.Handed the captaincy after only eight Tests when Shaun Pollock was sacked following the 2003 World Cup debacle, Smith was not a popular leader at first.Some of the more experienced players in the team felt he did not deserve the prize. It was tough going for a man who had been tipped for higher cricketing honours when spied as an 11-year-old at his Johannesburg primary school.Smith felt he needed to be "in your face", like a young boy trying to prove himself a man.Some saw right through it, including South African-born England captain Kevin Pietersen who dubbed Smith an "absolute muppet" in his autobiography."I think the thing for me is I am kind of in the spotlight all the time - it comes with the captaincy," Smith said."I will be scrutinised more."The scrutiny on my game by people and by media is a lot more than I believe on the other guys."I don't know whether it is the captaincy or what I achieved at a young age or the double hundreds, the standards I set myself in the first three years or maybe I am the type of player that people expect to perform day in day out. Maybe that is what I have created for myself."Maybe it is a standard I know I can live up to but I am not living up to."It is hard for me to pinpoint why but sometimes I do sit back and think, 'Geez, can't people be a little bit more patient with me'. I am giving everything that I can."This spotlight isn't always easy to handle but, as Smith, a bachelor, knows, that's life for elite sportspeople.While he was used to creating back page headlines, Smith also found himself in the gossip pages a few years ago when he dated glamorous South African model Minki van der Westhuizen, or "Slinky Minki" as she was known.They remain friends but that relationship is over, perhaps in part because of the demands of cricket.A hectic playing schedule makes having a stable love life difficult, as Smith explained before the Proteas left for their tour of Bangladesh last month."It's kind of hard to go on one date, have a nice dinner and then say: That was nice, what are you doing in six weeks' time? I'm going to Chittagong'," he said with a laugh."I met someone recently who was great fun. Maybe I'll get the chance to catch up with her again in 2009. . ."If South Africa is to claim a historic win in Australia this summer - as it did in winning in England this year for the first time since 1965 - Smith must perform with the bat.He has done that all year, topping the Test run-scoring list (1363 at 71.73 with five tons), and was superb in England with 369 runs at 61.5, including a match-winning, second innings 154 not out in the third Test at Edgbaston to rubber-stamp the series win.But the toughest challenge awaits.Smith and coach Mickey Arthur have recently spoken about their desire to leave a "legacy" - and they know conquering Australia is the final hurdle towards achieving that.Three years ago, Australia won the mental and physical battle, leaving Smith with a woeful average of just 22.25 in eight Tests against the world champions."We get inside your head, don't we?" the Australians would yap at him on the field.Smith confided in Ponting after the 2005-06 campaign: "Six months' cricket against you blokes, it's just too hard."In his 2005-06 diary, Ponting said: "I loved him saying that, because it highlighted what a tough, uncompromising side we've become."The tables have evened, even turned somewhat since then, with South Africa winning eight of its past nine series, with a drawn campaign in India this year.Smith - and South Africa - have truly grown up. 2b1af7f3a8
