    I always try to look on the positive side of things in cases like this.

    Lived to a good old age, will be remembered for decades to come and passed away peacefully.

    RIP Richie, not from my time but a legend nonetheless

    Watching Cricket will not be the same without him. He was always a constant in all my years of watching Cricket. Legendary Commentator and Broad Caster.

    Rest in peace, Richie. An absolute legend in the commentary box and was full of some wonderful anecdotes. By all accounts, he was a good leg-spinner and an excellent captain to boot too (the last - before Taylor's men in 1998 - to win a Test series in Pakistan, in 1959-60).

    Condolences to his family, his iconic voice and character will be missed.

    A great innings from Richie. He could bat, he could bowl and boy could he commentate. His voice is missed.

    "Subtract Lewis from that list, Wasim Akram is on a Hat-trick! Played On!"

    My most memorable line from RB.

    "Its great to see a leg spinner in action there's not many around these days who ball with wonderful control"

    My first test series i ever watched - RB comment Abdul Qadir in the 97 test series in England.

    I used to watch the highlights on BBC all them years ago and can say defo the best commentator ever.

    Sad news. Like many others my first memories of watching cricket here in the UK on the BBC was with Richie as the commentator.

    Strange seeing how there is no running around and crazy celebrations. Just a pat on the back from a few team mates and the others join in with the applause. Thanks for sharing the video
