Australia’’s oldest surviving Test player dies at 90

Australia’s oldest surviving Test cricketer, Len Maddocks, has passed away aged 90, Cricket Australia said on Friday. Maddocks, a batsman and wicket-keeper, played seven Tests for Australia between 1954 and 1956, and managed the Australian cricket team on its 1977 tour of England. He played 112 
first-class matches, representing Victoria and Tasmania, and was also a national selector and a Victorian Cricket Association board director. “Len made an outstanding contribution to cricket in his lifetime within state and national ranks, both as a player and administrator,” Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said.
