South African Cricket Player Andrew Hudson

Andrew Hudson is a former right-handed batsman of the South African cricket team who represented his team in Test and ODI cricket. With a total of 89 ODIs and 35 Tests that he played for during the 90s, Hudson is today recognized as a player who was a treat for the spectators with his determined performance, his square cuts, his cover drives and subsequent pulls that were superb!

Andre Hudson scored 2559 runs in 89 one day international matches at an average of 29.41 including two centuries and 18 fifties. His highest ODI score was 161. In 35 test matches, Hudson scored 2007 runs at an average of 33.45 including four hundreds and 13 fifties. His highest test score was 163 runs. Andrew was an excellent player for South African cricket team.

Hudson played for South Africa and KwaZulu-Natal, the province. It was in 1992 that he performed his Test debut in Bridgetown by playing against the West Indian cricket team. When it comes to Hudson’s career in International cricket, it is believed that this player who had so much of potential was not able to exhibit his capabilities to the fullest. Even though the average he had always maintained was above 40 for quite a notable amount of time but following the last Test tournament that Hudson played in 1997-98 against Pakistan, it ran down to 33. The only best score was when he played against the Australian team and made a feat of 481 runs at an average of 43.73.

In the realm of first-class cricket, Hudson performed his last year in the season of 2000-01 and was also under the constraints put forth by the quota system, thereby ending up performing in only 4 matches for the province. Soon after he retired, Andrew Charles Hudson pursued the career of being a financial consultant at a firm known as BOE Corporate. Currently, he is employed by the RMB Private Bank.
