Former players pose at the gathering in Sydney

Around 150 of Australia's 197 living Test cricketers assembled in Sydney on Friday night for a dinner organised by Cricket Australia. Each player received a replica baggy green and a plaque with their representation number on it.

The oldest former player attending was Bill Brown, who is 91 later this month, and who was the 150th person to represent Australia. The most recently-capped player, Martin Love, was the 385th.

Cricket Australia said it had not decided what to do with the caps of deceased players.
