It has been terrible week for Australia. The country lost two of it’s cricket icons – Rod Marsh wicket- keeper and Leg Spin Wizard Shane Warne.

Rod Marsh, an Australian cricket great and the wicketkeeper who formed a prolific wicket-taking partnership with pace bowler Dennis Lillee, has died a week after suffering a heart attack during a fundraising event in Queensland state. He was 74. The Sport Australia Hall of Fame on Friday confirmed Marsh, who played 96 test matches for Australia from 1970 to 1984, had died in an Adelaide hospital.

As if the blow was not enough the news came of leg Spin wizard Shane Warne passing away while holidaying in Thailand of a heart attack at 52. The twin blows sent shock waves and several Warne’s teammates and current players paid tributes on Twitter. While also remembering fondly the great Rod Marsh.
