Fans urged to wear Greig, Hussey tributes

Fans at this week’s final Australia-Sri Lanka Test in Sydney have been asked to wear tributes to the late Tony Greig and retiring batsman Mike Hussey, officials said. Wide-brimmed hats were suggested to recall the memory of former England captain and television commentator Tony Greig, who died of a heart attack aged 66 on Saturday.

Fans will also be urged to don the trademark white nose-protective zinc sunscreen synonymous with retiring Australian cricketer Hussey, who will be playing his last Test starting Thursday. Both teams will observe a minute’s silence before the start of the game and will sport black armbands in honour of Greig. Greig was instrumental in the formation of late Australian media tycoon Kerry Packer’s breakaway World Series Cricket from 1977-79.
