Remembered for a rare Test hat-trick, cricketer Lindsay Kline has ‘scored’ one himself. He became the third Australian Test cricketer to pass away in 2015 following the hallowed footsteps of Richie Benaud and Arthur Morris.
Frank ‘Typhoon’ Tyson, who passed away on Sunday aged 85, was like a meteor. The Englishman played only 17 Tests in five years and took 76 wickets at an astonishing average of 18.56.
Is this a domino effect? Have you noticed that the Australian cricketers retire in a bundle?
Although both The recent Ashes and India in Sri Lanka Test series were roller-coaster cricket, there was a big difference.
What a paradoxical end to a roller coaster series! Did you notice the expressions on the faces of the rival teams at the award presentation on Sunday?
I did not have the pleasure of seeing Arthur Morris bat, but met him a few times at the Australian Cricket Society meetings in late 1990s.
