Mike Denness, the only Scotsman to have captained England's cricket team, has died. He was 72.
Kent County Cricket Club, where Denness played and had been serving as president, says he lost a "lengthy but courageous fight against cancer."
The right-handed batsman scored more than 25,000 runs in his career which saw him play in 28 test matches for England and captain his country in the inaugural Cricket World Cup in 1975.
He retired from cricket five years later.
England and Wales Cricket Board chief executive David Collier says Denness "gave so much to our game in so many different ways as a player, captain, match referee and administrator."
