Potrait of a Legend as a Young Man

Watching and listening to Ritchie Benaud at the Adelaide Test brought home how old the man is getting.

Icons are supposed to have a bit of age about them but elite sportsman deserve to be remembered as they were in their prime. This old image captures a fair bit of what we were to see over the next 40 or 50 years.

Direct, eye to eye opinion.

Great picture - absolute legend. Sadly, I think many people have forgotten him as a great bowler and now only know him as a commentator.
