Has anyone scored a century in a one-day international and never played again? asked Richard Broughton
Seven men have scored a century in their last one-day international: this includes Ryan ten Doeschate, who made 106 for Netherlands against Ireland in Kolkata in the 2011 World Cup, and hasn't played an ODI since. There are two other Dutchmen in the list: Klaas van Noortwijk and Feiko Kloppenburg both made centuries against Namibia in Bloemfontein in the 2003 World Cup.
The more familiar names among the seven are Dennis Amiss and Clive Radley of England, and Desmond Haynes of West Indies: both Amiss and Haynes had scored hundreds in their first ODIs too.
The line-up is completed by James Marshall of New Zealand, who made 161 against Ireland in Aberdeen in 2008 - and shared an opening stand of 274 with Brendon McCullum - in what rather surprisingly turned out to be his last one-day international.
