The Australian Cricketing Legend & most celebrated commentator till date succumbs to cancer…yet he lives in the hearts of zillions fans and alike.
Read what Ravi Shastry has to say about his first encounter with the Legend in the commentary box once..”Ravi..remember…you are not paid for the number of words you speak but for the content of your speech”…!!!
Furthermore the famed Richie says to Ravi “..I’m unsure if it will apply in this part of the world simply bcoz the verbal diarrhea seems to be the norm”..!!!
More to follow..Richie once said about his mistakes in speech that he spoke English like a German..”.. He was never worried to correct that never worked saying ” what’s gone is gone..never try to correct as it might lead to a bigger mess”..!!
Richie Benaud, the most respected cricket’s thinking mind after Sir Don Bradman, had such deposits in his mouth creating rumble of both silk and timber…wrote Ravi Shastri in his tribute.
The fraternity has lost in him one of the most decent, dignified and respected Legends of all times. Rest in peace.Amazingly written tributes on his life and times reflect volumes of how immensely liked & popular he was. He have left for for heavenly abode, but Cricket shall always miss him. There certainly ought to be huge huge void created by his obituary for decades to follow.
