Christ, absolutely horrendous news. What a horrible shock.
Absolutely no age. RIP
Only 12 hours ago he himself posted a RIP tribute to another cricket. Shocking stuff, RIP
Heart attack at 52, fucking shocking.
One of, it not the, best bowler ever. Effortless.
My brother was saying he’d had Covid quite badly, but that doesn’t feel like it’d be enough to bring about this…
Actually probably wrong to speculate. Just gonna watch some highlights of him bowling/being a shithouse against England
Real gut punch reading that title. Such a shithouse on the field but transcended that with his brilliance.
Every so often there’s details like this when someone dies where it just adds to the incredible sadness of it all.
Watched this last year, and he really didn’t look particularly unhealthy. Genuinely really shocked by this, probably because he looks healthy enough for a 50-year old.
The absolute bewilderment on Gatting’s face.
Didn’t know this was his first test ball.
I think it was his first ball in the Ashes rather than his first ball in tests? Not sure though
First ashes ball, I stand corrected, he’d had a year before this.
Oh my. One of the very best.
Shocked by this.
an actual genius. one of the few australian players of that era you liked, he was just that good
i wouldn’t go as far as to say liked, but the warne/mcgrath/lee bowling trio was absolutely GOAT class
Fuck. You loved him, you hated him. Everything you want from a sportsperson.
Feel like that era of Australia were absolute pricks on the pitch but I’ve softened massively on all of them in the years since their retirements
Opposite for the same England era
