Graeme Hick's First Class Career stats

Hi there,

I've been trying to work out Hick's all-time first class stats season by
season. On
http://www-uk.cricket.org/link_to_database/PLAYERS/ENG/H/HICK_GA_0100...
there's his stats up to the start of the English 1996 season, where it
says his total up to then is 25650. Is that right?

Since then I believe it has gone:

E 1996        17     29     1    1245   44.46  215    5    3
E 1997        18     28     6    1524   69.27  303*   6    4
E 1998        17     30     0    1304   43.46  166    7    2,

leaving me 54 runs and 2 innings short of the total in this year's Wisden.
I know the 1997 FC stats stated in Cricinfo are wrong, but I can't confirm
the 1996 ones. Failing that, did he play a first class match overseas,
other than on the Aussie tour?

A 1998-9       6     11     1     412   41.20  125    1    3
E 1999        13     22     0    1063   48.31  150    4    6

(his record since then takes him up to 31252)

Sorry for this, but all my Wisdens are in cardboard boxes right now..

At the end of the 1995 season he had 25194, and then totalled 456 on the
England tour of South Africa. So it seems to tally.

All correct.

Hunting through the relevant Wisdens, I found that Worcestershire played
a Matabeleland Invitation XI at Bulawayo Athletic Club on 28th-30th
March, 1997. Hick c Campbell b Olonga 22 and c A.R. Whittall b Mbangwa
32.

Luckily, mine aren't :)
