Veteran South African Test and One-Day International cricketer Andrew Charles Hudson was born on March 17, 1965. In the 1990s, the right-handed batter participated in 89 international matches and 35 test matches for South Africa. Although Hudson didn’t exactly shatter records (he averaged a relatively acceptable 33.45 in Tests), he played with an elegance and a beautiful sense of timing that distinguished him from many of his more practical rivals. His cover drive, square cut and draw all had a great pedigree.
Andrew tended to flourish when things got tough, notably in 1996–1997 when India put South Africa in on a tasty Durban track and he scored a brilliant 80. No one else reached 35, and Hudson’s 80 runs in the second inning were more than the entire Indian team managed.
In 2000/01, he played his final season of first-class cricket. One of the best forms of cricket is first-class, along with Twenty20 and List A cricket. A first-class tournament is one that lasts three days or more and features two teams of eleven players each. It is deemed deserving of the designation due to the caliber of the opposing teams. Although in reality a team may only play one inning or none at all, games must allow for two innings to be played by each team.
