Former England captain and cricket commentator Tony Greig, who had been battling lung cancer, has died in Sydney after a heart attack.
Greig was a key figure in recruiting English and other international players for media tycoon Kerry Packer's breakaway World Series Cricket which was staged from 1977 to 1979 and sent shock waves through the arch-conservative sport.
Former Australian captain Bill Lawry said he was devastated at the loss of one of his closest friends. “We are absolutely shattered that he is no longer with us,” Lawry said. “I have been fortunate to be his friend for 33 years. “It’s a sad moment for world cricket.”
