BCCI condoles Richie Benaud demise

BCCI on Friday extended its condolences to the family and friends of Richie Benaud terming him as “one of the greatest leg-spinners and an astute captain to have led Australia” and someone who carried himself with “grace and dignity”. “Renowned as one of the greatest leg-spinners and an astute captain to have led Australia, Richie Benaud was a fine example of a highly competitive sportsman who carried himself with dignity and grace, on and off the field. Indian cricket remembers his exploits on Australia’s first tour of India in 1956-57 when Benaud emerged as a clear winner, claiming 23 wickets in three Tests,” said BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur.
