Denness passes away
Mike Denness, the former Kent and England captain, has died at the age of 72 after a battle with cancer.
Born in Scotland, he played 28 Tests and 12 one-day internationals in a career that spanned 22 years. He later became an ICC match referee.
Denness is the only Scotsman to have captained England and led the team in 19 of his 28 Tests although it was a controversial tenure, particularly during the 1974-75 tour of Australia when he dropped himself for the fourth Test in Sydney.
However, his 188 at the MCG was, at the time, the highest score by an England captain in Australia.
