Tony Greig dies of lung cancer
Tony Greig, the former England captain and well-known television commentator, has died after being diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year. He was 66.
Greig had been initially diagnosed with bronchitis in May but his condition did not improve and tests following the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka revealed that he had a lesion on his right lung. On his return to Australia from the tournament, he had "a lot of fluid" drained from the lung, and further testing revealed he had cancer. An integral part of Channel Nine's commentary team, Greig was not on duty at any of the Tests during the Australian summer.
He played 58 Tests for England, and led them in 14, during a five-year career that ended in 1977, when Greig joined Kerry Packer and was one of the key players in World Series Cricket. Greig scored 3599 runs at an average of 40 and took 141 wickets at 32 apiece.
It comes after Haddin sensationally blasted the unpredictable Jamaican for being all talk while failing to deliver on his hype and pay cheque at the Thunder.
Haddin shook his head as he walked off, then turned to Gayle to hand out his bat, implying he had done nothing with the willow earlier.
Haddin arrived at the boundary and told Fox Sports: "He's been all talk so far this tournament and they haven't won a game.
"It's disappointing to get out then, I was feeling pretty good.
"But at least the Thunder fans have seen Chris Gayle do something for his money.''
