Former Australia wicketkeeper and England manager Rod Marsh has died aged 74.
Marsh was in critical condition after suffering a heart attack in Bundaberg, Queensland last week and died in South Australia’s capital Adelaide on Friday morning local time.
Marsh made 96 Test appearances for Australia and ended his career with a record 355 dismissals.
He made a further 92 white-ball cricket appearances for his country during an international career that spanned from 1970 to 1984.
The news was confirmed by Marsh’s son, Paul, who said in a statement: « On behalf of my mother Ros and my brothers Dan and Jamie, it is with immense sadness that I announce that my father Rod passed away peacefully early this morning.
“He was an incredible husband, father and grandfather and we were so lucky to have had him in our entire lives. »
