Martin Crowe a legend

In the passing away of Martin Crowe world of cricket lost a gem of a cricketer. He was just 53 when the cruel cancer took his soul from the cricketing world. He is known for his innovation of opening the bowling in the 1992 World cup with off spinner Dipak Patel. A class batsman he was having of array of strokes to tame the battery of bowlers from the opposition. To my knowledge the second time when a brother followed another as captain in world cup. Elder brother Jeff Crowe captained the Kiwis in 1996 World Cup after both Ian and Greg Chappells. He was one of the few batsmen watching whom we have and continue to play the favourite game of all times. Really the cricket world is saddened by his departure. May his soul rest in peace. Life can be cruel. A batsman with short back lift elegant stroke play and delectable cuts dominated the scene of action in the cricketing field all over. With his white helmet he made a mark at the highest level. And after he hung up his boots, he delighted all of us with his astute, unafraid writing. The gods will be treated to a great discussion on cricket every single day. R.I.P.
