R.I.P Richie Benaud (1930-2015)


Hall of Fame
The doyen of cricket broadcasting has passed away. Just weeks after Australia won the Cricket World Cup, the most influential caller of the sport has died from skin cancer complications.

I may as well stop following cricket now he's gone; a loathsome arrogant Australian team that embodies the most uncouth and virulently unsporting competitive spirit is not worth supporting.

An international governing body riven with nefarious spivs and officialdom. Corrupt to the core.

Benaud gave his life to cricket and now it is a joke. Vale Richie.


benaud took 248 test wickets, made 3 test hundreds and never lost a test series as captain. made nearly 12000 first class runs and took 945 first class wickets. then he commentated for 50 odd years.
lets remember what a brilliant cricketer he was aswell as his commentary.
