Crowell will play cricket at the age of 91
Doug Crowell told ABC News, ‘This league is for people who leave their cricket careers at the age of 30 or around. They have the urge to play and they keep themselves fit. He said, ‘The ball doesn’t come so fast on the bat now as it used to. Now it is easy to hit the ball because the ball reaches you slowly.
Doug Crowell said, ‘I keep saying that a few years can drag me, but who knows. I am still fit and enjoying myself and whenever I am selected, I will go to play with my mind.

Doug Crowell further said, ‘We learned how to play our cricket the hard way, but it did not harm anyone. The important thing is that I am still playing and I think it is because we did not have good grounds and pitches. We had to mold ourselves. We do not even have the equipment to correct the field.
