Frequent bursts of laughter: Dicky Rutnagur and Tony Cozier Wisden

Dicky Rutnagur, the former sportswriter and radio commentator, has died in London aged 82. Rutnagur covered over 300 Tests in a career that spanned five decades, in which he also reported on squash and badminton.

He co-edited Indian Cricket - Field Annual for eight years starting in the late 1950s before migrating to England in the mid-60s. For about 40 years, Rutnagur wrote about cricket, badminton and squash in the Daily Telegraph. Rutnagur also wrote two books - Test Commentary (India v England 1976-77) and Khans Unlimited (the history of squash in Pakistan).

He was fondly remembered by several former players and his former colleagues in the press box.
