  52. 52. The following day X batted in the match against Zimbabwe 'A' team in the game in Mutare. I am not sure of the exact timing of events because I was in the nets with other players when X went in to bat, but the new ball had either just been taken or was imminent when I saw X walking from the field holding his right arm.<br /> When I enquired as to what had happened X said he had felt a click in his elbow as he played a ball through the leg side and that he thought he should have it investigated. X had complained of pain to his elbow at various stages of the one-day series, but he had resisted having any comprehensive investigation done and, from my observation, had been spasmodic in his treatment habits, often not using ice-packs for the arm that had been prepared for him.<br />20<br />
  53. 53. X rejected these suggestions and said he would be 'fine'. When I queried what he meant by 'fine' he said he would be fit for the Test match. I then queried why then was it necessary to be off the field now. He said that he was just taking 'precautions'. After the loss of 3 wickets to the new ball, X returned to the crease with the ball now around 20 overs old. He struggled for runs against a modest attack and eventually threw his wicket away trying to hit one of the spinners over the leg side. <br />The next day I enquired with a number of the players as to what they had thought of X’s retirement. The universal response was that it was 'just X' as they recounted a list of times when X had suffered from mystery injuries that usually disappeared as quickly as they had come……<br /> excerpt from a report on X by Y.
