After 23 years at the crease and a total score of £27.7m, Cornhill has finally retired from cricket.

At its final England player of the year ceremony in London, Cornhill announced that Andrew Caddick of Somerset and England was the award's last winner. He was presented with the trophy and a cheque for £11,000.

The insurer's general manager, Mike Newnham, also presented England captain, Nasser Hussein, with a special award to mark Cornhill's final season as sponsor of the English game. His prize came for improving England's standing with the fans despite losing both test series.

Caddick's star performance stemmed from his absence from the national game for the preceding 12 months followed by a blistering bowling season in which he took 36 wickets for an average of just over 24 runs.
