Martin Crowe's persistent knee injury

Martin Crowe's persistent knee injury

Martin Crowe inspects his knee brace at the New Zealand versus India match, part of the BNZ Centenary Series, in Napier, in 1995. The New Zealand cricketing star underwent a major knee operation in 1993 for a persistent injury he had received in a schoolboy rugby game. After the surgery Crowe was able to continue playing, but only with the help of a titanium brace. The continual strain on his knee led Crowe to retire from test cricket in 1996, at the early age of 33.
