Tony Greig, who has been a regular commentator for Channel Nine for 24 years, had a crisp style of delivering the pitch report, with the help of his car keys and later a pen. He won't be part of this season's commentary team as he has been diagnosed with cancer, and Ian Chappell says in the Daily Telegraph that it won't be the same without him.
The keys were later traded in for a biro pen after Greigy lost the key to Room 210 of a Perth hotel deep in the WACA wicket. To this day, the room key remains buried. The first Test at the Gabba have been tough for the Channel 9 team, as their old mate battles lung cancer.
Asked how he felt about Greig being absent from the Gabba, Chappell paused. "It's like when we were playing and a player was dropped or injured, it's a shock to all of a sudden not have them there," Chappell said.
