In his heyday this helmeted hero was compared with, and called equal to, Gary Sobers. Fortunately, some of us have good memories.
King Cricket was, like your hero, left-handed, but there never was an occasion when he was left out. Mediocrity was not his middle name.
The finest memory I have of Muhammad Ali is of him having Jerry Quarry helpless on the ropes and going to the referee saying 'he's had enough'.
A sportsman indeed.
If only others would follow his example.
