    Richie Benaud dies

    Never been mad on cricket but he was a good bloke.

    "And Glenn McGrath dismissed for two, just 98 runs short of his century."

    "The slow-motion replay doesn't show how fast the ball was really travelling."

    RIP to the gent. I have heard of him. 84 was not a bad innings.

    Had it been me, ...would've pegged it much earlier I dare say....from boredom.

    Yet another 'voice' of sport passes on. Like Sid Wadell, sadly gone, and the retired Sir Peter O'Sullevan & Murray Walker.... all had distinct voices you would recognise. Not like the one-toned Neville's and Owen's of this world.

    I heard this on the BBC World news.
    Very sad. A voice I remember well from a previous life.

    Always imagined him to be a real nice bloke, and it seems he was.

    Certainly gives us a sense of our own mortality when it's someone you thought would always be there.

    RIP Richie Benaud
