    Fitting tribute.

    Richie Benaud was cricket, and in his passing the sport has lost a part of itself.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!


    'You will look very silly said Mr Salteena with a dry laugh.
    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    What a beautiful tribute Burgey. Absolutely loved and I am pretty sure the man himself would have appreciated it. Indeed, Richie Benaud was cricket. The cricketing world is a lesser place without him.
    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

    Over the next four decades, Richie and his devoted wife Daphne lived a life without a winter, travelling between Australian summers and what passes for summer in England.
    Wonderful.

    Brilliant tribute. I have a sneaking suspicion that despite the quality of the article that it wrote itself and flew off the "typewriter" such were the large number of memories you had.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    I asked if one of the CW writing team would mind putting an article together as a tribute to the great man. 23 minutes later, Burgey amazingly responded with this awesome tribute so yes it clearly just flew off his typewriter.

    surely Burgey might have used a computer instead of a typewriter?

    Moving stuff Cam. The best piece about Richie I've read, and there's some pretty stiff competition out there
