The Bearded Wonder - RIP

Just seen that Bill Frindall, the wonderful statisician on Test Match Special, has died. How very very sad.

He might have had a job which made me insanely jealous, but he did it supremely well. Fantastically accurate, he had an ability to unearth obscure facts and records with astounding speed. He would then articulate them calmly and cleary without fuss or over-statement. Despite spending far less time talking on air than any of the commentators, he was an integral part of a fabulous programme.

Cricket will miss him.
