Retired Numbers


Retired Numbers

In November 2007 Queensland Cricket introduced a mechanism to appropriately recognise the state's great one-day players since the inception of the domestic one-day competition in the summer of 1969-70.

For the very special one-day players, QC chose to retire their playing number. Or make a similar recognition of those who played in the era prior to numbers.

To qualify, players who represented Queensland before 1996-97, when numbers were introduced, needed to play at least one match in each of 10 seasons.

For those who played from 1996-97 onwards, when an expanded 10-match round robin competition was introduced, they needed to play 100 matches.

Eleven players were honored at the first retirement ceremony. They were Phil Carlson, Geoff Dymock, Trevor Hohns, Carl Rackemann, Greg Ritchie and Jeff Thomson, plus Trevor Barsby (No.2), Allan Border (No.5), Stuart Law (No.10), Geoff Foley (No.19) and Wade Seccombe (No.46).
