Dead Pool 2019

Australian cricketer Bruce Yardley has drawn stumps after a prolonged battle against the Bengal, which defeated him yesterday aged 71. He was a good solid pro who came to the national side relatively late aged 30 during the period when a lot of Kerry Packer’s WSC players were banned from playing Test cricket.

Although a spin bowler, he was a useful late order bat, hitting the fastest Test fifty, a record that stood for 38 years. In his 33 Tests between February 1978 and April 1983 his 126 wickets came at an average of 31.63 including six five wicket innings and a best of 7-98 against the Windies in January 1982.

Former Test spinner Yardley dies, aged 71

A great cricketer
 
I suspect even the trendy millennials on here will be struggling with that one.
It seems to be a trend though, Scouse bands being wiped out in car accidents always with an up and coming band I'd never heard of

There was another one a few years back
