I went to the airport today to pick up my brother and I arrived a little bit early so I decided to get something to eat. I sat down and after five or so minutes I look to my left and see Richie Benaud in his trademark ivory jacket about to sit down at the table next to me. Amazing.
He went up to get something to eat so I pretended that I wanted something else to eat and went up to the counter. I casually said to him ' looks like Aussie have the 3rd test pretty much wrapped up Richie' to which he replied 'Yes it seems that way' then I shoke his hand and got his autograph and then sat back down.
It was incredible seeing him, especially since he lives in Aus and if he was in NZ then you would think he would be in Auckland for the test, and quite funny that not that many people were recoughnising him. Lol just after I spoke to him he decided to put his sunglasses on.. probably to try and stop people from realising who he was.
