I'm very saddened to say that the Australian leg-spinning all-rounder, ex-captain and broadcasting legend Richie Benaud has passed away at his Sydney home at the age of 84. He was battling skin cancer and also suffered after-effects from a serious car accident in November 2013.

The cricketing world has lost a true legend, both on the field up until his retirement in 1964, and then off it, during his broadcasting career. Australia have lost a real national treasure.

My thoughts go out to the whole Benaud family at this very hard time.
