Great Shame That ‘Bob Willis’ (70) Has Passed Away — He Was A Decent Bloke.

He had a beautiful action.


Screen capture from the YouTube video below. I remembered this, from 1981.



With him being just four-years older than I, we were contemporaries and he played all of his professional cricket while I was still living in the U.K. I saw a fair amount of him — live, mainly at Lord’s. I would have to assume that I must have seen him in one of the Hampshire grounds or Somerset (which I visited a fair amount) but I can’t remember.

I do remember, vividly, the time he came out to bat without a bat. That, however, was on TV.

Nice guy. Beautiful action. Great cricketer.

I had seen him ‘recently’ on ‘Sky Sports‘ doing post-game analysis. Always very sage.

Shame. 70-years old. They say ‘after a long illness’ but I haven’t found out (as yet) as to what it was.

He was a decent bloke. A TRUE, genuine Brit.

I will miss him.
