    Awful news.

    TMS probably the most integral sound of my childhood and CMJ was a brilliant part of that.

    RIP

    Amazing to think that, although relatively young men, CMJ and Tony Grieg had between them notched up 75 years in the commentary box. One can easily see why many cricket fans in Australia, and now in England, will feel that a little bit of their own lives has died with them.

    another one goes

    not a great week for cricket
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Cancer really is one of the great evils of this world.

    RIP CMJ. TMS will never be the same.

    Another huge loss for cricket. Enjoyed him immensely on TMS with Agnew, Blofeld & Boycott. RIP.

    That's awful. I didn't even know he was ill. He was one of my favourites on TMS. So sad.

    I can't agree with that. CMJ was one of my favourites. A true lover of the game who wrote and spoke on it amazingly.

    I hope they can find some good new blood at TMS. With only Aggers and Blowers the only old guard left. Simon Mann is ok but anyone else they have tried just doesn't seem to fit.

    Yes end of an era really with Tony Greig and CMJ passing away well before their time. There are few of the older generation left, but you wonder how much longer they can go on.
