I think the spelling is Richie Benaud. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-04-10/richie-benaud-dies-aged-84/6050344

The voice of many a summer from my pre-teens to what seems almost like the present day. RIP.

My father was an obsessive cricket fan and like Dave that name and voice is evocative for me of young summers and radios.
RIP Mr. Benaud

I wonder if a Mudelf could correct the spelling of Ritchie's surname in the title to Benaud, please?

Can we please dignify the name of a great man of cricket with the correct spelling of both his forename and surname:

RICHIE BENAUD

____________Several attempts to change the title were "no-balled" earlier today. Apologies. MudElf_______________

Hi
Sad News for a great cricketer and Ambassador for the game.

I saw Richie play several times and he usually contributed significantly.

I saw him at Old Trafford in 1956 in " The Jim Laker " Test.

Richie always respected how great Jim was and often made references to it.

Richie was a gracious man and a thinker about the game.

He became one of the World's great commentators.

For me the second most evocative to John Arlot.

RIP Richie. My condolences to family and friends.

MikeL2

A lovely feller, as warm as toast and as mellow as a warm August afternoon.

Too young to have known him as a player but as a commentator, forms part of what I recognise as my love of the sport.

Very sad indeed.

Vaguely remember seeing him as a player, I remember him more though as a commentator, along with Brian Johnston and John Arlott they were in a class of their own and now that Richie has passed it really is the end of an era.

But with Benaud in particular his response to Sky's job offers and his family's refusal to accept the offer of a state funeral speak volumes towards the humility, integrity and honesty of the man and the family. What ever job he took on in life he did astoundingly well, seeking no adulation, or personal glory - Rest In Peace.
