Sadly, Cricket Australia confirmed a short time ago that the legendary wicketkeeper had passed away.

Tributes have already begun flooding in for the cricketing icon, who played 96 Tests for Australia between 1970 and 1984.

He also previously served as Australia’s chairman of selectors between May 2014 and November 2016.

More to come.
