The ECB is deeply saddened to say farewell to Bob Willis, a legend of English cricket, at the age of 70.
Bob spearheaded the England bowling attack for more than a decade and took 325 Test wickets.
He will always be remembered for his outstanding cricket career, in particular his 8-43 in the dramatic Headingley Test victory over Australia in 1981.
In later years as a broadcaster Bob was a perceptive and respected voice at the microphone.
We are forever thankful for everything he has done for the game.
Everyone at the ECB sends sincere condolences to his family.
Cricket has lost a dear friend.
