    Vale Trevor Bailey

    BBC reporting that former England great and TMS commentator Trevor "Barnacle" Bailey has passed away in a house fire aged 87.

    RIP to a fine cricketer and character.

    RIP to the man who had to rely on Wisden to remember his wife's birthday every year

    I think that's just Reg Simpson, Bob Appleyard and The Typhoon left of Hutton's Ashes winners - a sobering thought

    Terrible way to go and my thoughts are with his wife. A solid cricketer and epitomised the 'officer class' that many could admire. RIP

    Yeah, no way to go. Well before my time, but obviously a great player and a lover and contributer to the game. RIP.

    Had a great innings, if a tragic dismissal.

    Played.

    Saw it on my local news over tea. Great servant to English cricket and Essex in particular.

    His clipped, patrician tones were a fixture on TMS for most of my childhood. Sad loss and an awful way for a long life to end. RIP.

    Oh no! Not the Barnacle! What a legend, and what a horrible demise. A hero for any fan of Essex and more entertaining in the commentary box than on the field of play in many ways.

    It was Bailey, wasn't it, who played for a University XI in 1948 against the Invincibles then backed up for his county the next day? That day being when Australia piled on 700 in a day? I seem to recall him saying in commentary that he only played against the Don twice, and "he hit all my bad balls for four, and most of the good ones too"!

    Quite a character. Horrible way to go.

    RIP to his friends and family

    But seriously, he will be missed. As a cricketer, I'm sure he would get the irony for dying at the age of 87.

    Essex were the only side to bowl the Invincibles out inside a day - for 721 - this was the game when Keith Miller came in at 4 or 5 by which time the score was already around 400 - he couldn't be arsed with batting so he let Bailey bowl him for a duck - he always complained that Bailey never returned the favour

    Still gutted about this. Craig's ninja post not helping. I'll push over a cyclist later today in way of compensation.
