In sport as in life….


A sad day for cricket lovers with the death of Ritchie Benaud. Too young to see him play he was however a regular in my living room for as long as I can remember, until his retirement from commentary in the UK a decade ago. He left us behind  because he did not agree with test cricket in the UK being only available on pay to view TV.  Here are two  comments from Ritchie Benaud being much quoted today –

“Leadership is 90% luck and 10% skill, but don’t try it without the 10%”


“Put your brain in gear and if you can add to what’s on the screen then do it, otherwise shut up”.

In sport as in life?

  1. Yes Richard, a sad day for his family and the cricket world. A superb cricketer, captain and commentator. I had the pleasure of meeting him at a WACA dinner in 1988.
