His knowledge of sport, and especially cricket, was extensive and he was generous to a fault. An example of his knowledge and generosity came a day before his premature demise when he was the one who announced to everyone -- his joy at a rare cricket stat trumping the need to be the first to report it --  in the press box that Shahid Afridi had just been dismissed for his 100th duck.

He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and colleagues.
