    Farewell Lindsay!

    SA cricket has gone into mourning over the loss of a great. Dennis Lindsay, the legendary wicketkeeper batsman has died! I am in shock.
    RIP Lindsay

    Denis Lindsay, the former South African wicketkeeper-batsman who was an integral part of their legendary side in the late 1960s, has died in Johannesburg after a short illness. He was 66.

    Lindsay's career high came against Australia in 1966-67, when he took 24 catches and hit 606 runs, the most by a keeper in any Test series. He started as he went on by scoring 69 and 182 to win the opening Test at Johannesburg, following that with 137 and 131 in the third and fourth Tests. Recalled against the same opponents in 1969-70, he scored 43 and 60 in a 323-run win at Port Elizabeth, South Africa's last match before their worldwide ban.

    Ali Bacher, who played with Lindsay and captained him in 1969-70, told the SA Press Association: "Denis was diagnosed with cancer of the bladder earlier this year and it spread. He fought the illness with the same courage that he displayed on the cricket field. He was a great team man."

    Lindsay's father, Johnny, who was also a wicketkeeper, played three Tests against England in 1947.
