Cricket community mourns Bannister

Former Warwickshire bowler and cricket commentator Jack Bannister has died at the age of 85.

Bannister took 1,198 first-class wickets during 19 seasons at Edgbaston, but was perhaps better know as a pundit on the BBC and, more recently, Talksport.

Former England bowler Darren Gough, a colleague of Bannister’s at Talksport, paid tribute, tweeting: “RIP jack bannister. A great man who was opinionated, honest, knowledgeable and passionate. A top cricketer, writer, broadcaster will be missed.”
