Greig's family and colleagues pay respects in Sydney
Thursday 03 January 2013
Tony Greig's wife and son and former broadcasting colleagues, including Richie Benaud, paid tribute to the South African-born former England captain with a minute's silence before the first day of Australia's Test match against Sri Lanka in Sydney.
Greig, who was a familiar voice on Australia's Channel Nine cricket coverage, died of a heart attack last Saturday.
In the match, Sri Lanka finished the first day all out for 294, having been in a strong position at 250 for 5 after being put into bat by the home captain, Michael Clarke. Australia hold an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
