I was never a big fan of Thorpe and was particularly bemused when he scored the winning run leaving Alex Tudor 99 not out but J will say this, he is an extremely brave and though guy. I saw him facing bowling that leaked at 94.5 mph out of the Blue zmountsjns in Jamaica in 2004. I have no doubt he has the stretto recover from this illness.

Ironically his partner at the other end was a gug I tried to get arrested for impersonating a Test Cricketer! He is another guy J now have enormous respect for.

So sad about Roy. We as cricket fans were cheated out of seeing his talent. He only played 26 Tests. He has prodigious talent. I don’t know if he had personal demons or was just too much of a maverick for a team manager. You only have to read the commend his contemporaries to know what sort of man he was.

Symonds best fielder I ever saw at the 2006/7 5-0 Ashes drubbing.

Shocked to read this. Three good Aussies lost in such a short time.
