    He was such a great player. I think he would have gone on and captained England in the One Day version of the game. Cricket has lost one of it's most honest, funniest and talented players to a deathtrap. R.I.P.

    A measure of how well liked he was at Cricinfo:

    Sad, sad that such a nice guy and precocious talent has been robbed of the world by such a horrible and brutal event. I never met or knew him but Ben Hollioake had a real light about him which could illuminate people. It's part of why he was so popular and a measure of why people would come from miles around to see him play, to see this player in the making. He could have been great. Not to be.............

    Condolences to the Hollioake family. They've suffered a great loss.
