Richard "Richie" Benaud, OBE (/ˈbɛnoʊ/; born 6 October 1930), is a former Australian cricketer who, since his retirement from international cricket in 1964, has become a highly regarded commentator on the game.Benaud was a Test cricket all-rounder, blending thoughtful leg spin bowling with lower-order batting aggression. Along with fellow bowling all-rounder Alan Davidson, he helped restore Australia to the top of world cricket in the late 1950s and early 1960s after a slump in the early 1950s. In 1958 he became Australia's Test captain until his retirement in 1964.Gideon Haigh described him as "... perhaps the most influential cricketer and cricket personality since the Second World War." In his review of Benaud's autobiography Anything But, Sri Lankan cricket writer Harold de Andrado wrote: "Richie Benaud possibly next to Sir Don Bradman has been one of the greatest cricketing personalities as player, researcher, writer, critic, author, organiser, adviser and student of the game."

1But I think the only thing that annoys me about that is if I suddenly find someone on commercial radio or something like that, mimicking my voice or actions and trying to promote a product and pretending it's me doing it.
2Writing is difficult all the time; the thing is to learn something every day.
3Rory Bremner I have no problem with; he is a satirist, and a very funny one, too.
4It was sad leaving the BBC; not quite like being divorced, but you don't leave after a period stretching from 1960 to 1999 without feeling a certain number of pangs.
5'Mullygrubber' is an Australian term which means something that creeps along the ground; it's like a little grub.
6I know it's more five-star now than it was then, but it's still a difficult tour. In the same way as India and Pakistan players find it difficult coming to Australia. People sometimes have difficulty believing that.
7The only thing that really annoys me is when all of a sudden you hear yourself on the radio advertising Smith's tyre shop or Blenkinsop's jam. They simply can't do that. And in Australia, occasionally I have to take action.
8In fact, as a spin bowler, you have to work on the batsman over after over.
9Coogee is a delightful, slightly old-fashioned suburb; it has parks and gardens and reserves, a good well-kept beach, and an excellent promenade above the beach. It is a suburb for people who appreciate those aspects of life.
10Media were never allowed into an Australian dressing room until I became skipper. I changed that and invited them in at the close of play each day, thereby confirming for many administrators they had appointed a madman as captain.
11My mantra is: put your brain into gear and if you can add to what's on the screen then do it, otherwise shut up.
12Captaincy is 90 per cent luck and 10 per cent skill. But don't try it without that 10 per cent.
13From our broadcasting box you can't see any grass at all. It is simply a carpet of humanity.
14The slow-motion replay doesn't show how fast the ball was really travelling.
15The hallmark of a great captain is the ability to win the toss, at the right time.
16A cricket ground is a flat piece of earth with some buildings around it.
17Any captain can only do his best for the team and for cricket. When you are winning, you are a hero. Lose, and the backslappers fade away.
18The problem with relying on nostalgia for commentary is that people only remember the good things.
19When my hair is long enough to be cut, I go to my wife's hairdresser, and she generally pays for it.
1The elder brother of the cricketer John Benaud.
2The doyen of television broadcasting for 45 years, initially with the BBC (1964-1999) and subsequently with Channel Four (1999-2005). He announced his intention to broadcast solely on free-to-air Australian television, following the move of UK TV cricket coverage to Sky in 2006.
3He has visited a village in France called Benaud and is, in fact, the President of French cricket.
