He has played alongside <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/richard-hadlee/">Sir Richard Hadlee</a> and his last appearance for New Zealand came in 1989. However, at the ripe age of 68, the fast bowler, also known as The Naenae Express , decided to call it quits from the game on Saturday. <p></p> <p></p>According to a report in <em>stuff.co.nz</em>, Chatfield decided to hang his boots after he was slogged all over the park playing for Naenae Old Boys in Wellington. <p></p> <p></p> It might seem silly, but I have standards, even at 68, and if I can t play to those standards, I thought it is time to flag it, he was quoted as saying in the report. <p></p> <p></p>Chatfield was famous for his exploits as a number 11 batsman. He is most remembered for his last wicket partnership with <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/geoff-howarth/">Geoff Howarth</a> that yielded 44 runs in a Test against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/england/">England</a> in 1975 also his debut match. He was hit on the head with a bouncer by <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/peter-lever/">Peter Lever</a> that fractured his skull in the same match. The knock was so hard that heart stopped beating. However, a timely CPR from England physiotherapist Bernard Thomas saved his life. <p></p> <p></p>Chatfield wanted to retire with a century, but he could only manage could not improve on his previous best of fifty something . In his last match on Saturday, he registered a golden duck. But that s not how he wanted the headline to read. <p></p> <p></p> The Naenae Express has run out of steam, he said. "I would not mind that as a heading."
