Australian Legend Rodney Marsh Passes Away

Melbourne: Australian cricket legend Rodney Marsh, who is regarded as one of the finest wicketkeepers to have ever played the game, passed away following a cardiac arrest at a charity event on Friday.

The 74-year-old, who played 96 Tests and served as a national selector for a long time, slipped into a coma and passed away at an Adelaide hospital.

Marsh made his Test debut in 1970 and bid adieu to the game in 1984. He was then the holder of a world-record 355 Test dismissals.

He was the first Aussie gloveman to have scored a Test century.
